Is it possible to convert one format to another? I thought so, but I'm having trouble doing it.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What I'm trying to do is convert a photo to an icon. The free icon converter I have is ignoring the JPEG files totally, but it recognizes BMPs.

What problems are you having and what program are you using to convert? It should be no problem to convert a JPG to a BMP.

I just saved a JPG as a BMP in Irfanview and opened the BMP in Photoshop. The image seemed normal.

I just downloaded it from PCWorld, it's a pic converter that only converts a very small
portion of the photo. Two reviews said that it was all but worthless. I agree. The little worthless program recognizes BMP, but won't recognize JPEG, so I thought I'd try converting the JPEG to BMP, but it's not worth it.

Thanks!

Or IrfanView.com if you want to install something for file conversion.
Thanks brendan! I think I'm going to go with IrfanView. Thought I had something, but the program is almost worthless and it wouldn't recognize the JPEG files.
