Bitmap and gif help?

  Idle And Wild 14:42 02 Jun 2004

Hello! When I'm browsing websites and I encounter an amusing or otherwise interesting gif I try and save it to look back at later. I've noticed that quite often when I right click on the gif and go to save as the only file type I can select is bitmap. This, obviously, is useless for animations. Does anyone know why this happens and how I can get around it? Thanks in advance.

If no other solution install Irfanview which will save in all the formats [and more] that you want. But I think your prob is to do with your file associations and the paint prog.

Isn't it more an Internet Explorer problem as the pictures are viewed in IE and they'll only save as bitmaps?

Go to tools/internet options and temporary internet files then press "delete files" . Restart IE. That should clear it.
