Viewing Graphics

TeleFinder supports graphics viewing both on, and off-line. The types of graphics files supported are GIF ( Graphics Interchange Format ) are PICT (Macintosh picture format ).

Open the graphics file icon to view the file while on-line. Use the "Open" command from the File menu to open a file from your Hard Disk.


The GIF format has several advantages for on-line viewing.

  • GIF uses lossless compression to keep file size small without sacrificing image quality.
  • GIFs can be "interlaced" which lets you see the full picture sooner.
  • GIF supports up to 8 bit color and custom palettes.
