Until recently, when I Saved picture As, it would save as a jpeg by default
and give me the choice of other formats with the drop - down menu. Now it it
saves as BMP and gives me no choice. Is there a way that I can get back my
choices?

Basically, you need to clean up your temporary Internet files.

Thanks. I regularly clean out my temporary internet files and I checked that
"Do not save encrypted pages to disk" is not ticked but I still have the
problem.

Hi

Try clearing out the Temporary Internet Files folder:

With Internet Explorer open, go to Tools>Internet Options and click on
'Delete files...'. Then try saving the files again.

Paul,

This helps for some users:

Delete the History folder and index.dat:
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/delcache.htm

Type in Start/Run dialog:
regsvr32 shimgvw.dll
regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll

Both to fix the "Content Type" values in the registry.

Thanks Ramesh. Did all that but still have the problem. I've now discovered
that if I right click the picture and send it via email then it is sent as a
JPEG! Curiouser and and curiouser.

Paul,

Clearing the TIF helps for a majority of cases. Other possibilities covered
in KB810978.

Internet Explorer Saves Images As Bitmaps (.bmp Files)
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=810978

Apart from that, don't know what would be the problem.

Thanks Ramesh. Still no luck, though. I've found that, in file name, if I
type "anything" then .jpeg, it will save as a jpeg. Time consuming but I
guess that wil have to do. Thanks again.
