Hi. Somebody mailed me some files which are supposed to be graphics, and they are called image.sig. I cannot open them in any graphics program, and i tried changing the extention to gif and jpg. They are not valid gif or jpg files.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Try opening one of them in a text editor.  That may give you a clue.  The only sig files I've ever heard of are signature files; either e-mail ditties or program signature files.

PS - no, that doesn't work, it's binary garbage.
