i'm trying to copy pictures from the web but i can only save as bitmap or artfile. I want to save as Jpeg. Any ideas?

artfile is used by AOL.

In AOL : Settings/Internet Properties check "never compress graphics

You can Convert a .art image file to the proper format by using AOL.
Download the file.
Determine if you can open it with your graphics program if not its probably in .art format
On the AOL Menu (top menu) select FILE then OPEN
Search for the .art file you downloaded.
Click the file to open it. AOL's File Viewer window opens and the picture is displayed.
Once the file is open simply save it in the proper format.
AOL's file Viewer handles Gifs, Jpg, bmp, as well as other formats.

PS don't download your images through AOL.Use I.E.

Save them as they download, then open them up with a picture editor of somesort,then save as jpg.

Just a suggestion.
