Re: Still Cannot Save Pictures From WEB in JPEG Format
I haven't seen your other thread, so I don't know if what I say is just a repeat of what has been said before. if it is, I apologise.
I am confused about the problem and I have some questions;
1] When you right click and choose "Save As", (in IE it is shown as "Save Picture As"), at the bottom of the Save As dialogue window do you not see an option to "Save as type"? If you do, is there a pull down arrow? If so, what options do you have in the list?
This can be a bit misleading, because sometimes you can only "save as" the type of picture that is already displayed. For example, at the top of this page is the CNET logo, and next to that is a picture image of the word "Reviews". If you right click that and choose save as, you can only save as a Gif, or (strangely) "all files".
2] You say that BMP pictures are not previewable on your system. That is very strange as .bmp is the standard picture format for many things. Do you have "any" .bmp's on your computer? (Do a search. Goto Start > Search (or Find) and search for files using *.bmp . Thats a star, then a full stop, then bmp. There should be hundreds of bitmaps on your computer. Double click any of them and see what happens.
3] What happens when you double click a bitmap image? Do you get an error report? If so, what does it say?
4] Do you have any JPG's or JPEG's on your computer? Do a search as above if necessary.
5] Do any of these display when you double click them? If not, what happens?
6] Where do you save these images to? I'm not being nosy, but sometimes people cannot find images once they have saved them and they don't think it has saved properly. I'm sure you do know where you save them to, but are there any jpg's in that folder at all?
7] Have you used MSPaint? This is a simple drawing program and can be found in Start > Programs > Accessories > Paint. Open that up, goto File, then Open, and search for some bitmap images. When one is displayed, goto File then Save As, and see if you can save it as a JPG file. You should be able to from Paint.
Let me know what you find out.
