Changing picture from bmp to jpeg

  User-178362 20:56 11 Sep 2005

On my PC I can convert to different types but I do not know how to change on my sisters. She has xp. When I click on a picture within My Pic it comes up with the option to convert on my own PC but not this one. What can I do to so that she has the same choice.

Irfanview click here will allow you to do this.

Open the picture in Irfanview and choose File | Save As.

Thank you. I have put this on her Favorites as I cannot down load it. I might find myself in the wrong. They have 2.58GB of space. Not sure what mine is called, to be able to convert, I can also print from the drop down menu. I will close this now, but come back to it when I am on my own PC.

Just remembered, mine is called Pickaview. Is one better than another, and does one take up more space than the other? Thank you.

Does Irfanview take up much space, more or less than Pickaview?

Irfanview is very small. I don't know how big Pickaview is.

If I down load it would it just give more opptions? If I did would download it would I be able to just delete it and go back to the one that was already there as this is not my PC if I wanted?

Yes. If you don't like it you can remove it from Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs.

Whilst idling around surfing the 'net I found this and thought it was useful

""when I try to Save As in Paint, I have only options to save as 4 types of .bmp or a .gif file. No option for jpeg. Is this normal ""

heres the fix it's number 6 on the list: click here

I have 2.66gb. free on this PC. Just looked at IrfanView which one should I download? as it gives a few to choose from?

Any - they are simply different download sites for the same program.
