WHEN I TRY TO SAVE WALLPAPERS OFF WALLPAPER WEB SITES AND I RIGHT CLICK ON THE PICTURE AND SELECT SAVE PICTURE AS IT GIVES ME 2 OPTIONS ON THE WINDOW THAT APPEARS TO SAVE PICTURE EITHER BITMAP OR ART,BUT WHEN I SELECT EITHER OF THESE 2 OPTIONS THE PICTURE CAN NOT BE VIEWED,BUT A FRIEND OF MINE DOES THE SAME HE CAN SELECT JPEG WHERE MINE GIVES ME THE 2 OPTIONS OF ART OR BITMAP,AND HE CAN THEN VIEW THE WALLPAPER HE HAS SAVED,WE BOTH HAVE WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK 2.I WAS WONDERING IS THERE A WAY TO CHANGE SOME SETTING SO THAT I CAN SAVE THE PICTURE AS JPEG INSTEAD OF ART OR BITMAP.

First try saving the picture to your hard drive as bitmap.Then go here click here
download this and on install select images only,then open up the file you saved and re save it as a jpeg file,you dont have to use irfanview to do this any image software should give you the option to re save as a jpeg,but the above seems to support most file types.

I have fixed the problem,the solution to it was in AOL they compress graphics when you don't have a broadband connection so I switched it from this to never compress graphics and now I can do what I couldnt before,but I think this is the same for all AOL dial up connections.You just go into settings then internet (web browser)settings then where it says web graphics select never compress graphics.Doing this solved the problem for me.

Thanks for the help

You will also get this if your temporary internet folder if full. If it happens again click on Tools menu in IE, choose Internet Options and ckick on Delete Files....TT
