    Hi! I created some photoshop and illustrator files for someone who has a mac computer. The trouble is, I'm not sure how to name these files. Should I use something like MacDrive?

    Thanks!:)

    The only difference is that Mac OS and Linux do not actually need file extensions to idetermine what the content type of the file is. A JPEG Image could be called filename.jpg, filename.jpeg, jpeg.filename, filename.txt or just filename and it would not cause a problem with identifying the application to open it with. It is only M$ Windows that requires file extension to application mapping.

    Also, if you are transferring on a hard drive, you need it to be in FAT32 format not NTFS

    Mac OS can read NTFS formats.
