Can someone please tell me how to change a clipart Bitmap to a Jpeg? I have W98, Ulead photoshop & paint, do you use one of these programs. Please help a 'newbie'

Im using Unleaded Iphoto Plus which should be similar. Open up the program, then go file>open then open your BMP, then go save as. In the save box thing, underneath file name it says save as type. Change BMP to JPEG and save.

hope this helps. If that doesn't work, you can also use Microsoft paint (under accessories) and do the same thing.

Hello Jan
Yes I believe you need to use a photo editing programme to do this. Whilst I am not familiar with Ulead Photoshop and paint I use Ulead PhotoExpress. The way to convert is to open the bmp image in your photo editing programme and select to save in the file type you choose, in your case Jpeg. Basically the steps then are:
1. Open image 2. Select type (Jpeg) from the save options 3. Click on save and save to where you wish the image to be kept. Hope this helps.

Grab a copy of IrfanView from www.irfanview.com (its free).

Just open your image and goto save as.

Irfanview also supports batch conversions if you have a lot to convert.
