If you double click the ZIP archive a new window should open showing the contents which will presumably be .JPG files. Drag these files out of the ZIP window into another folder (My Pictures?) from where you should then be able to open them as normal graphics files.

forgot to tell you that my friend has windows xp
how does he find the zip archive (sorry im a silver surfer)

It appears that your friend has already created the "zip archive" (which is just the correct name for a zip file) and this is what you have been sent.

If you double click the zip file that you've received, a window should open displaying its contents. Is this not happening?
