finally got a ziped email unziped, now I want to print it out, but when I try I get a message: Could not draw this picture. It may not be recognized by Quick Time for Windows. or there may not be enough memory. I know that I have enough menory, so what else should I try in order to get this printed?

the only way i know how to open the file is to go to documents where what i want is, and clicked on what i wanted, tried to highlight but it wouldn't highlight. if you would please give me step by step instructions so i can try again. sure would like to be able to get this printed.

Ok now I don't think the problem is in printing just that file, I tried to print just something off of a site, just to see if it would work. It highlighted just find, but got a message that the computer was not communicating with the printer, so now what do I do? Should I try to reload the printer disk? couldn't find anything in the printer book to tell me what to do. It is a Lexmark Z32
Any help on this one?

Hiya

Is the picture saved as a thumbnail, in My Documents? If so, try going to View | Details.

Then, just click to highlight, and follow what Hairy mentioned.

Also, can you open any other pictures?
