saving images off of the web

i have been saving alot of images of the web lately to use in sigs or to post in the COD forums, but the problem is that every image i save is saved as a .bmp file and i have to go and convert it in photoshop to change it to jpg. After i do this i have to go and delete the orignal .bmp because for some reason it doesnt just change the original copy. i would save them just as a jpg but .bmp is the only option when i click to save an image.

i know someone has a simple answer to this but it has been very irritating

Right click and choose "save as" from there you can choose the format from the drop down menu.

nope. i tried all the stuff they said and nothing. every pic i try to save only gives me .bmp format as an option, and the document is always "untitled"

yeah im using XP pro and i remember that i use to have options also. i thought thos solutions would help becasue it makes sense but oh well. it said that microsoft acknowledges this as a problem....punks. the last soultion they stated was to use a photo editing program to change it, and thats what ive been having to do and it SUCKS!

thnaks for the info though Rb. ill look around more and let you know if i figure something out...

I have the same prob with it.. .but i live with it. It has a lot to do with the type of page its put on too... If its just an image alone its a bmp. If its on a web pages, you might get mixed results. OR VICE VERSA i can't remember.
