My W98 pc uses the application PAINT. When I try to save a graphic using PAINT I seem to be offered only extentions BMP and DIB, not JPEG or JPG.
Am I missing something? How can I save a graphic in JPEG -- to save an image with reasonable (unlike BMP) size? Or do I <have> to use a different app, not PAINT?

Hmm I don't know about your case, but does saving in a .PNG take up less space?

Maybe you should save it as a BMP but use an freeware image editor (I have one in my mind, but the name is slipping) to save it as a JPEG.

I highly recommend InfranView for a nice easy solution for you. Simply open the image {I recommend saving as PGN), and you can use the File->Save as menu to save as a JPG/JPEG. It is fully compatible with all Windows 9x operating systems.

you should have imaging (kodakimg.exe), if you have then you can open the .bmp with it and save it as .jpg

I don't think saving it as a bmp, then converting to png or jpg is a good idea. Image quality is lost while changing the formats.
