Winders XP crap
« on: June 08, 2005, 10:22:40 AM »
Damned if I can figure this out.

 When I right click on an image with the mouse, I can only save it as a BMP file.
  It doesn't give me any other options, like it used to.
I can't seem to find any settings any where that controls this.

  Any body have any ideas? :duh:

If it's a BMP file being selected, then BMP will be the default save file type.  If I right click a JPG, PNG, GIF, etc...  it gives me that file type in the drop down.

See what you get with these examples:

JPG---->

PNG---->

GIF---->



If all the above say BMP, I would start by checking file types and associations.
CLICK--->My Computer/Tools Menu/Folder Options/File Types Tab

Make sure all your file types are listed and configured for default actions:
only the jpg portion of the file list is displayed in the example below



Sometimes new software installs will change default file associations.  Example would be when quicktime opens all movie files after installation, or a newly installed Photo Suite opens all images.
You can configure default associations in the File types tab...
Thats bout all I can think of off top of my head...

You have to access your profile settings.  Go to the bottom to the avatar settings and paste in the url of the picture you want to host.  Custom avatars must be hosted at sites like ImageShack or Photobucket.  There you will get the url for that picture.  There are dimension limitations to adhere to so have it scaled down to the proper size before uploading to the host site.-
