Is the file 0 bytes? Maybe image preview is turned off. That is all I can think of at the moment. Don't have XP, but don't suppose it is so different from ME.

Is it happening with every picture your saving?

What are you doing to save the pic?

Set your viewing as - view as thumbnails, this wont make it better, just easier to view.

I sometimes have had to rename the file I'm trying to save, prior to saving it. Try saving to another location as well.

This sometimes rarely happens to me and I would love to know why.

Hope you get it solved.

what happens if you save as a GIF?

I had that problem when i first started with AOL.
If u have AOL, go to customise then preferences
then internet properties then web graphics then
click never compress graphics.
hope this helps u

I've had the same problem & rather than 'save as target' I now copy the picture & paste into an Image Editor (Photoshop). If the picture is then saved as a Jpeg into My Pictures or wherever it can be opened in image preview without difficulty.
