All files and programs on your computer are simply a series of 1s and 0s.
To send a fax, these 1s and 0s need to be rendered into a format that will
display the picture as something other than random numbers and letters that
represent the picture, hence the requirement to "render" these 1s and 0s
into a format that will display the picture when faxed.

| As I said, these are pictures from a digital camera. There is no
| program associated with creating them. Additionally I fax through
| outlook. Printing to the fax driver does not provide me with the
| documentation I need.
|| As Hal said, use the Print function in the application in which the
|| image was created to Print to the Fax Printer. That will take care
|| of rendering. --

||| Thank you, but I don't know what rendering a jpeg image means.
||| Let me try to ask it in a slightly different way.
||| I know how to create, modify, use in various programs, "save as" to
||| a different file types, all tif, jpeg, bmp, pdf, etc. file types.
||| All of these
||| file types work as attachments to outgoing faxes except jpeg. What
||| does "rendered" mean and can you explain how to do it?
|||| As Hal said, they need to be rendered first.

||||| So I take a picture with my digital camera which produces a JPEG.
||||| Transfer it to my computers hard drive. Attach it to an outgoing

||||| Why won't it fax JPEG attachments?
