Change the filename and not the extension. EG if the picture has the name earth.jpg, only change the part before the `.jpg`. Windows uses the extension to recognise file-types. Same goes for all the other image types, .bmp, .gif etc etc

Go to My Documents, Tools, Folder Options, View and tick the box that says 'hide extension for known file types'. You will not have to worry about the extension any more when you rename the file.
