PostPosted: Jan 15, 2003 9:39 pm    Post subject: I need some windows xp help Reply with quote

For some reason I can't save pictures from web pages. When i right click and save as, my only options are .art or .bmp. When I choose either of those options and then go to the file and try to open it there is nothing there. this is very important becuase I need to collect all of Kyles pictures(j/k) but is frustrating. is this a setting with my browser or something else. Can someone help me out please. Thanks

p.s the reason I asked for xp help is because my work computer is win 95 and I have no problems saving pictures. so I'm not sure if it's xp or my web browser, home is aol and work is windows explorer.

Save them as .BMP and open them up in Photoshop or another image editor and save them as .jpg, .gif, or whatever you want.

Note where you save it at. When you open the folder, click view all files in the FILE TYPE dropdown list. It should be in there.

You should try to download a copy of PaintShop Pro by Jasc it is a really good program and not too big. You can get it off Kazaa. Any imaging program should be able to do this.

What format is the picture that you're trying to save in? (right click on the pic, then select properties). If I try to save a .gif file then my only options are .gif and .bmp. But if the file is .jpg then I can save it as either .bmp or .jpg.

So maybe the pic is in the wrong format. Also, when you go to save it try just including .jpg in the file name.

By the way, you can still use Internet Explorer even if you use AOL. Just connect to AOL and then open IE. You don't have to use the built-in web browser which sucks.

If you right Click on a picture from the net and save it to your computer.
IF you left click on the pic and it does not open or the file has an Icon that looks like a little piece of paper with a flag in it then.
1. you dont have a program to open it or the file does not have a program associated to it.

If you have Micro$oft Paint standard on any Windows box then right click on the file in question. their you might see OPEN WITH. If so scroll down to the Paint Program. There will also be an option Check box to use this program all the time... Your Call.... IF the OPEN With does not appear Right click on the FILE -> Properties In the General tab there is an Open With Change box click that sucker and find a program... Paint.
