when you save a file or picture it should have under the name you want to call it and save file type as: and select JPEG ;)


If that doesn't work result to hitting the dam thing hard and telling it off :funny:

If it starts to save as bmp you need to empty all your cr*p files. Internet explorer and delete all offine content.

Hmmm...Friday night and we're talking computers ;)

Oh well.... ;)

I run Linux on my laptop (which I use 95% of the time) and at work. Only use Windoze for Flash/Premiere type stuff. For most other software there's a Linux alternative. Security-wise, Windoze is a shambles, and the nice thing about Linux (apart from the security) is the amount of free software out there.

Having said that - and this is quite a big 'having said that' - there's still a relatively steep learning curve with Linux. Mandrake is apparently making leaps and bounds in terms of usability for beginners, but with Linux it's best to try a number of different types (distributions) and find one that suits you. My preference is fedora

Quite honestly, if you can use a computer well enough to post to this forum, you can probably use Linux. Just don't expect your Granny to! :D

Still, loads of peoplea are happy with Windows - if it does what you want it to, just make sure to keep it up to date!

:cheers:

Linux & windoze

Don't know if it will help, but there is a distro of linux that is easy to set up called Xandros. If you have a look at the many linux mags out there (wh smiths is a good place) they generally have discs on the covers. I've been wanting to try linux for some time (cos i hate windows).
This one loads itself up on a windows machine, partitions the hard drive for you and puts up a boot menu at the start, so you can choose whether to run linux or windows. Easy peasy...
Unfortunatly I don't have the disc anymore, as I gave it away. Tho' I'm sure you could source a copy on the net somewhere.
Hope this helps. :cheers:
