how to open .dll files on iMac 10.4.11

Specs: Macintosh iMac 10.4.11
About ten years ago a backed up some jpg's onto disk. Not sure but I think it was from the OS-9
iMac. because they were important photos.
When transfering (I thought all the data) from the OS-9 ( to my present iMac G-5 Intel 10.4.11
I was crying for the last few years because a few photos were missing. Going through all my old disks, I found them. Loading the disk I see a bunch of .DLL folders (exec folders) which I believe are the long missing photos.
Does any one know how to open these???
Any help is appreciated.

Hello, sir, and welcome to Computing.net!

The files you are looking at are extension .dll--which stands for Windows Dynamic Link Libraries. Think of them as extensions on OS 9, or as system bundles and components in OS X.

These are not your pictures. If you can identify a filename, does it appear like your picture, such as 0001.DLL or 041211.DLL, (where that'd be a camera saving by date April 12, 2011) rather than .jpg?

However, I'd highly doubt that. It appears you have opened a Windows installation or program backup disc from a Mac that can't decode it. Look for .dl, .DL_, or .DLL at the end of each file.

Let me know if you have any other questions or, if this was helpful, give it a thumbs up! Glad to assist you.

Thanks for your reply. At the time I also had "Paralells app" on my iMac. Most likely
I downloaded the window app. Problem is I gave up and deleted the paralell app.
I gues I just have to live with the thought that the images are gone fore ever.
