How to convert Unix executable file to Tiff

Hi, I know nothing about Unix. Recently received image files from a client. Mac sees it as a Unix executable file. How do I convert these files to Tiff?

Thanks for helping.

Image files

I would begin by asking the client what format the the files are. If they are tiff files change the extention to .tif(f)

Changing the extension has no effect on the file content or composition. It matters not whether the file is on Unix, Mac or mainframe - it is what it is.
