Internet Explorer 6 Picture Problems

  User-A513884A-C47B-4EFC-81D8ED4F8C039EBB 01:22 23 Mar 2003

Running IE6 and W98SE: when I load a page and try to save a picture, regardless of what the picture is ie. GIF or JPG etc the save option defaults to BMP only. I cannot change the file format. Any ideas? V Annoying.

Like this

The filename.gif


whatever, and ignore the BMP.

Although a few things can cause this, one of the most common is a full internet cache - have you emptied your Internet cache files?

Here is an MS article about the issue, which explains more about the issue and how to resolve

Hope this helps, it is annoying like you say!

For goodness sake - why do thos MS addresses never go in right?!?

Copy and paste the following and then put http:// in front of the text in the address bar (no www);en-us;Q260650

If you edit the MS address when you are on the site, it will post okay, for example, your's is:;en-us;Q260650

edit it to look like this:

and it should post okay with the http. I.E. change the "sc" to "kb" and delete the "kb;en-us;Q".

And yes, Gazzer99, empty your Temporary Internet Files folder in IE > Tools > Internet options > General tab > Delete Files button. Hopefully that will cure it.

I have the same problem and also i can't save as a .jpg in Paint.

I think its to do with the file association being used by another photo package (in my case Adobe Photoshop)

However i can save as .jpg in Opera and its a much quicker browser anyway...

Why didn't I try that. Fairly obvious when you think about it. Must admit I usually have a good clear out on a regular basis, but haven't done recently. Thanks again...
