    Simple Web Image Converter for My Mom

    My mom has a barebones PC that she uses primarily for e-mail and web browsing. She'd like to save an image from the web (non copyrighted) but has no way to convert it to a jpg.

    Can anyone recommend a simple solution or download? With all the malware out there I'm afraid to download anything unless it's recommended and linked here. (The Lounge = Peace of Mind, thank you very, very much).

    Thanks.

    Check out Irfanview. It is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> and supports many formats. See IrfanView formats for a list.

    Re: Simple Web Image Converter for My Mom

    It's not entirely clear to me what you are requesting. Does your mother need help to save a web image? Or does she need help to convert a saved image to .jpg format? If it is the former, she need only right click on the image and click on Save Image As... or Save Picture As... (depending on which browser she uses). She can also simply click and drag the image to the desktop.

    If she needs to convert an image from one format to another (such as .jpg) why not use Paint, which comes with Windows?

    Cheers,
