How do i check what format the picture is in & how can i change it for free..???
You cannot upload a picture that is part of a document that easily - If you are trying to copy/upload a photograph from a word document you need to save it as a separate file before you can upload this.
Select the picture in the document, then right click it, select copy, now open Paint program (comes free with Windows under accessories)from Edit click Paste it should now appear in the window. Now click File Save As and as a .jpg file.
If you have Vista there is a very easy way. Open the Word document with the Picture you want to extract. Now open a programme you may not realise you have called the Snipping Tool. This will put a white opaque covering over your Word document. You will see you will be able to draw a selection round the picture in the document and save it as a JPEG. This is the Vista way of doing what used to be done in Paint - Rahere's system will work but Snipping is a quicker way. brambles
Then using FastStone, choose Output to File(Auto save), then take a Screen-shot of *just* the picture itself using the 'Capture Rectangle Region' option. The picture will then be automatically saved into your My Pictures folder.
