Ok well i have tried using winzip, but the only thing with that is if the recepient doesnt have it, they can't unzip it. So, how can i convert my pics to jpeg? i have tried that before but with no success. thanks so much!!
You must have a graphics program that will
save a file in a variety of formats. The program
that (hopefully) came with your scanner should
be able to do this (this is the program that your
picture loads into for viewing after scanning).
Just load the BMP file into the program, click
"File" then "Save As". It should have a "Save
as file type" (or something similiar) dropdown
list. Press the little down arrow and you'll see
if there are any other file extensions available
(jpg, gif, tif, or whatever). Choose JPG (if it's
there), and click "Save" (use a filename you
can remember, mine are just numbered by
ok , well it opens up in corel on my computer, and when it opens it says 'invalid file format'. I have tried switching it to open jpegs but it still wont open it. Do you know what im talking about and how to fix that? Thanks!!
well i have an HP OfficeJet G Series Scanner, and when i scan a picture it scans into its own OfficeJet screen, not really a photo program. I usually copy the picture and send it to another program because i dont know otherwise...it has always worked before but for the past couple months or so, the pictures that i am downloading are way to big to send over email. Im using hotmAIL, i know that that is the reason i cant send big emails, but still, i would like to know how to downsize them without switching email addresses! would it maybe be because my computer is getting too full? thank you!!
no, i was able to save it as a jpeg. Just when i tried to open it, it would open in Corel and say 'invalid file format'. The program i saved it as a jpeg in was the screen from my scanner, the HP OfficeJet G Series screen... i saved it on my desktop
If you know where the file is located,
in your browser, click "File", then "Open"
then "Browse". Locate the file and double
If you don't have a clue where it's at,
right click on the shortcut on your desktop
(you did say you have a shortcut to the JPG?),
click "Properties", then "Shortcut". Copy the
"Target", and paste it in your browser address
window, or use the file/open/browse method
to load it (now that you've seen where it's at).
