    Sure, just open it any image editor and save it as a .jpg . May I ask why you want to do that? I can't think of any reason to do so...

    Just change the extension to .jpg. It's not the proper way to do it but for something like thatit's the the quik and dirty way. Unless they have a script that examines the image to insure that it is in fact a .jpg they'll never know the difference. It dispaly in IE and Firefox... I wouldn't doubt it works in other browsers too.

    1. open the image and then go to the save-as and pick the format you want to save it as.
    2. right click and pick rename and then add the extension to the name.
    like if it was a picture named wilson44512 and it was a .jpg then when you go to rename it name the file wilson44512.gif to change it into a .gif.
    But I would make a copy of the image first so you can make sure you don't screw up and lose a image you want to keep.
    3. Then if you have a image viewer you should have option to convert image formats too.

    Go to My Computer, on the top click tools>folder options>view ... Under files and folders uncheck hide extensions for known file types. Go to your image right click and select rename and change the extension for gif to jpg.
