Hey guys not sure if this is the area to post this but let me know if not and where.

I just got a new pc with windows XP and im tryng to save pictures from the internet (cd album covers to then print for cd labeling) anyway the problem is that it doesnt work. Hers what i used to do with win 2000:
go to amazon.com or allmusic etc, find the album cover picture, enlarge if possible for better pic quality, then right click over image, then "save picture as", then either as art or bitmap whatever and save to desktop folder. then i would just go there and it would give me a preview of the pic and then i would open the cd labeling software so that i can open the pic to it and print. easy enough right/ well it will do everything on XP as i mentioned above, except thqat when i go to the folder that the picture is in, the picture is there but it wont open with anything. it even says preview not available. i know the the sample pictures XP come with, do preview and open as well. So my question is, how do i get these pictures to open with XP after saved from internet? thanks for the help or where i may find it. John

Have you tried saving them as a .jpg or .gif? I've seem similar problems you are mentioning by saving a .jpg or .gif as a .bmp thats why I asked.

Does this help?

Internet Explorer Does Not Save Graphics Files in the Proper Format if Username:password Is Part of the URL (Q260650)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:


Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 for Windows XP
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 for Windows 2000
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 , for Windows 2000
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 for Windows NT 4.0
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 , for Windows NT 4.0
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 for Windows Millennium Edition
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 , for Windows Millennium Edition

Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 , for Windows 98 Second Edition
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 for Windows 98
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 , for Windows 98
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 , for Windows 95


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


SYMPTOMS
When you use the Save Picture As option for a graphics file in Microsoft Internet Explorer, you are only allowed to save the file as a BMP file, even if the file is in another format, for example, GIF or JPEG. The file name may also appear as 'Untitled'.



CAUSE
There are several reasons why this issue may occur.

This issue may occur if your Temporary Internet pages cache is full.


This issue can occur if you have "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" selected in Tools, Options, Advanced Tab and are loading the page over a secure connection (https).


This issue can occur when you connect to a Web site using an address that contains <username:password>. For example, the server is accessed through http://<username:p[email protected]>/default.htm, instead of http://<site>/default.htm.


For more information about an additional cause for this issue, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:


Q250747 Right-Clicking, Selecting 'Save Picture As' Does Not Save Image with Correct Extension



WORKAROUND
You can use any one of three methods to work around this issue.

Workaround for Cause 1
To resolve, delete the temporary internet files by selecting Tools, Options, General tab and select the Delete Files button.

NOTE: To locate the Temporary Internet Files folder, click Options on the Tools menu, click the General tab, and then click Settings. The current location is indicated in the Settings dialog box.
Workaround for Cause 2
To workaround, uncheck "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" from Tools, Options, Advanced Tab. Then select View, Refresh to reload the page.


Workaround for Cause 3
Method 1
Open the Temporary Internet Files directory and locate the image that you attempted to save.


Right click the image and click Open .


When the image loads into Internet Explorer, right click the image and click Save Picture As . The correct file type and name should be correct.


Method 2
Type in the direct path to the image that you wish to save.


When the image loads into Internet Explorer, right click the image and select Save Picture As . The correct file type and name should be correct.


Method 3
You can also save the file in BMP format, and then covert the file to the desired file format using a graphics editor.

Right-Clicking, Selecting 'Save Picture As' Does Not Save Image with Correct Extension (Q250747)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:

Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 5.01 , 5.01 Service Pack 1 , 5.01 Service Pack 2 , 5.5 , 5.5 Service Pack 1 , for Windows 2000


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


SYMPTOMS
When you right-click an image in Microsoft Internet Explorer, click Save Picture As , and save the image, the file name extension is missing when the file is saved.



CAUSE
This behavior can occur when the file name has multiple periods. When a file name in the File name box contains a period (.), Windows Millennium uses the text after the last period as the extension of the file, regardless of the information in the Save As Type box.
For example, if you save the image Mscom.w2000.site., with a .jpg extension appearing in the Save as type box, Mscom.w2000.site is the resulting file name, and the .jpg extension is missing.



RESOLUTION
To work around this behavior, add the proper extension to the file name in the File name box.
