Technical Computer Question

Just recently, when I try and save pictures from this site (I collect corn snake pics:)) I only have the option of saving them as bitmaps, whereas before it would usually let me save them as jpegs. I'm pretty sure it's my computer, and not everyone posting pics as bitmap files. Anybody know why this is happening and how I can switch it back?

Hey, someone say, computer. This is my field :P
Right, if you save the picture as bitmap, simply open it up in paint, then go straight to 'save as', and overwrite the picture as JPG.

I HATE it when this happens, it took me soo long to figure out what was wrong.

Sounds like your temporary internet files folder is all filled up :) clear this (Tools > Internet Options), close and reopen your browser and you should be able to save jpegs again.

How'd it go Edmund, did that fix your problem? If not maybe someone else could lend a hand..

I think it worked, Tracee. I haven't had that problem again since deleting those files. So thanks a bunch!
