If you are still having problems with the Photoshop file, I recommend that you check a few items that frequently cause File Transfer Protocol issues.
Select the "Image" drop down menu at the top of your Photoshop program, then select the color mode RGB. RGB is the standard color format for internet files. [Freqently, the choice of CMYK, a format used in lithography and offset printing, a frequent cause of internet issues]
It is best to avoid a TIFF format. TIFF is file format rarely seen beyond the graphics and print industry.
If you have a Mac, you will want to save the files in a friendly format for your Windows friends, too. The Save As drop-down menu provides such options for cross platform protocols.
For viewing on the internet, it is usually safe to save images in JPEG format. Photographs with broad spectrum of color manage well under JPEG format and if your recipient will be printing the file, JPEG is the file format for you.
Still, you have another very user friendly option avaliable, too. GIF. Both graphic formats are widely used as standard formats on the internet. If you have an image requiring areas of transparency, GIF is the format to use. Gif files do well at small file sizes, too.
