hi...I have a digital camcorder and I am capturing still shots off the video, then saving them to a file.
They are in the .bmp format...how do I change this to .jpeg?

Thanks!

You should be able in paint to convert it to jpg by clicking
"save as" under file & adding the extention .jpg


Try it & see

ok guys...thanks for the quick replies, but these stills are already saved into a file as .bmp format. When I go in and open using MSPaint, click on saveAs: and put the title with .jpeg it will switch it in the title, but I can't open it from the file - it's just a white screen.

What am I doing wrong? should I go back and re"grab" these off the video and convert it then?

Thanks for all your help and sorry for the confusion.
Davey, I looked into irfanview but I am using Windows98 (it isn't compatible)
:D

The image file you want to convert is now a BMP file. So open MS paint & click file / open & select the BMP you want to convert.
When its opened in paint... go to file & "SAVE AS" if you can select save as JPG then do so...if not ...then " SAVE AS" & type in imagefile.jpg in the directory where you are naming the file. OK,
then close Paint & go to the directory that the imagefile.jpg was saved to.

There you will see the jpeg & BMP both if you left it in the same directory.

PS... Irfanview is compatable to Win98... I used it for a long time on Win98

Infranview is your best bet. It's soo easy to do with it. But when saving .bmp images from MSPaint by adding the .jpg or .jpeg extention, you could lose the ability to view as a thumbnail in Windows also. Irfanview doesn't do this and all is well in "Convertland"
