click here Holly Polly and this great and free app will do it in a jiffy. To the best of my knowledge Paint will only save to bitmap format.

Seem to have forgotten to say this app will convert your bitmaps or anything else to JPEGs or whatever format you want.

You can open and save jpg's OK in Paint, I've just tried it. Are you opening Paint then opening the file or double clicking on the file to open it?
