You've probably already done this with the AppleScript solution, but for
future reference, you can set a Mac file type using the "filetype"
property. So all you'd need to do is something like this:
set the filetype to "????TIFF"
put url ("binfile:myfile") into url ("binfile:myNewFile")
Just for the record, if you are trying to set a file type on stacks, you
need to use the "stackfiletype" instead.
