Why are all of my JPEG files greyed out in the “Import Image” dialogue on my Macintosh?

This problem occurs due to the difference between the way Macintosh computers and PCs specify file types. Macintosh computers use a “Resource Fork” to identify files and their associated applications. If you have created JPEG files on a PC or downloaded from the web, they will not include resource forks, and Kahootz 2.0 will not be able to identify them as valid files. You can fix this problem by saving copies of your files with an image editing program on the Macintosh – the copies you save will include a resource fork. The Kahootz team can also provide you with a drag and drop utility that you can use to assign resouce forks to multiple files (contact support@kahootz.com for further details). This problem is resolved in Kahootz version 2.0.4 on OS X.
