Default IR BLASTER to send JPEG?

Is there any way of using the IR port to send photos to devices, like we could with phones 10 years ago?

Interesting. Perhaps, someone can develop a software solution for it. Have you checked if there's an app for that on the Play Store?

I thought an IR blaster was an IR transmitter. Is it not?

It is. But to receive, you need a IR sensor.

All I want to do is send photos via IR to an old printer of mine, not receive them as I know a receiver would be required for that.
