I presume your dad has a recent version of MS-Windows, so I think there would be
a graphic viewer including JPEG, GIF and other file formats.  I think there
would also be an Adobe Acrobat Reader, or else it can be downloaded free from

How did you send the graphic and PDF?  Was it by email, as base64-encoded
attachments?  Was your dad able to extract/decode the base64 to get the JPEG and
PDF files?  This looks more like a Windows question than a NetBSD question.
