Hi Guys

How do I go about detecting a hidden file within a jpg?

Cheers

change it's extension to .zip or .rar, and open it with "Archive Manager" (File Roller).

Though it may also be a tar.gz, tar.bz2, 7z, etc. .. It may even be a self-extracting archive (.exe)

Thanks, Mark

I remember now, I was trying to over complicate things.

OK... easiest way to explain.... download this (right-click pic, select save):


Change it's extension from .jpg to .rar then open it with archive manager.
