    i just formatted my pc, and i once was able to save pics from the web
    (when they are already jpegs uploaded) as jpegs or whatever, but now i am back to being only to save those as art, or bmp files. My paint program is also only saving as bmps, when it used to save as anything. Do you know what i can do to fix it? i sure appreciate any help. :)
    I am running windows ME.
    Thanks
    Tina

    We need more information.

    Which program are you using?

    Is the program set up (in settings or options) to see Jpegs?
