I want to change my avatar and I have a pic in mind but first I need to change the pic into a .jpg file. But I can't seem to do that in Adobe Photoshop. The file I want to use is currently in .bmp format but photoshop for some reason won't let me convert it into a .jpg file. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

Have you tried opening the .bmp with windows paint and then use the save "image as" option?Usually windows paint will let you save the image in different formats.

I never use it, but just tried - it appears not to be working for me either. :confused:

Will look into it.

George, Paint Shop Pro also allows easy file format conversions.

There is an updated version of the forum software available. This should resolve the quick reply issue.

Hopefully, I will get it updated this coming weekend.
