uses ...jpeg;

//reads file and saves it as text (only readable symbols)
//you can make shorter strings
//it is useful to check last byte of file - Is it $FF (255)?

why would you wanna do that ?
if you wanna send the image over internet there are better simpler ways of doing it
one would be to sayve it to a memory stream and send that over
create a header in which you set it's size so when receiving you know how much data to receive
that's really how binary data should be sent
if you wanna know the details I can post an example

Try the code below. It should work fine to send picture or any data over internet... I didn't test it, just wrote and send you. If i have time i can try. Let me know if it works. Feel free to ask if you don't understand...

Sincerly,

Atilla

type
  TFileInfo = packed record
    Name: ShortString;
    Size: Cardinal;

procedure SendJpeg;
var
  jpg: TJpegImage;
  stream: TMemoryStream;
  fi: TFileInfo;
  StartPos, OutBuf, InBuf: Integer;
  Buffer: array [1..4096] of byte;
begin
  jpg := TJpegImage.Create;
  try
    jpg.LoadFromFile('myfile.jpg');
    stream := TMemoryStream.Create;
    try
      jpg.SaveToStream(stream);
      stream.Position := 0;
      FillChar(fi, SizeOf(fi), #0);
      fi.Name := 'myfile.jpg';
      fi.Size := stream.Size;
      with TClientSocket.Create(nil) do
      try
