Image download ??

Hi !

How can i make download -script, which don't show JPG-image, only download it ???


RE: Image download ??

if u are trying to download an image, like GIF or JPG, you can try to change the content-type from image/jpeg to something like application/octet-stream (this is for exe file).

this is just a suggestion and i have never try this before. hope it will work.

RE: Image download ??

I've used the method ttest suggested.  On some browsers it works -- give it a content-type which is generally not associated with a program (even a bogus one) and it will try to download it.  However, some browsers check the file header and will output the image in the browser anyway.

I would suggest you just output the image and let people right click on it to save it to their harddrive.

Otherwise, maybe you could zip it first.
