I’ve been working through a lot of old pictures, made from scans my brother sent me. Mostly I’d trying to eliminate a bunch that are pretty much the same thing, like havivg 20 pictures, from the same “date” my parents had, all in the same room.
Well, as I search for titles that help me focus on a specific group of pictures, I also get a lot of search matches that include the matching title and file type (like jpg), but instead of showing the image, it has some kind of standard Mac icon that has “IPA” on it.
All the ones I checked are in the same folder - one I created myself on an external drive. That folder was set up to store copies of apps for my iOS devices.
When I look in that folder, I only see the apps - none of the files with the picture names. So that seems odd.
Second, if I try to open one of these icons with IPA, it will say something like, “You can’t install the application _____ because it is not supported on this type of Mac”. The name of the iOS application varies. But the file I’m supposedly trying to open says it’s a jpeg. If I delete the file (that is, which has a jpg ending, but has the IPA icon), the application it said it couldn’t open is what disappears.
Just doesn’t seem to make sense to me!
