Digital Images - Bitmap v JPeg

  neil_raj 22:54 05 Sep 2005

Hello friends:

Trying to copy images taken from a digital camera via email onto my Compact Flash Card for printing.

I assumed the images from the digital camera would be in JPeg format, but they are saving as Bitmaps. When I transfer these Bitmap images onto my Compact Flash card - the card will not reconise the prints.

Can I change the source of the Image when I save it to be in JPeg format so that the Compact Flash Card will read it?

Many thanks............ Neil.

Right click on the file and from Save As select .jpeg files

If this doesn't work open it in a photo editng utility first (or in MS Paint) and do the same.

Also, I would check the cameras manual, there should be an option to change the format eg .bmp, .jpg or even .raw.

With the format set to .jpg you should be able to take/save more photos than with .bmp.

Hope this helps.
