    Whenever I try to save any picture from the web it gives me this problem:

    1. the filename is automatically filled in as untitled
    2. the filetype is automatically .bmp and when I go to choose file type the only type there is .bmp

    ** I have adobe photoshop, and I had microsoft image composer on my comp

    also...if I am receiving a picture from msn there arent any filetypes to choose from...not even the .bmp

    In Internet Explorer, go to Tools>Internet Options>General tab and click on the "Delete Files" button. That usually clears up the "save as bmp only" problem.

    You can replace "Untitled" with whatever name you want for the file before you save it.

    Download and install IrfanView 3.85. It's a great and very popular free utility for saving a photo file in several different formats.
