I copied the 'Mark Warner for Senate' banner image from his campaign website to the 'My Pictures' file on my computer, and edited it.  My object was to then post it in the gallery section here so that when I do put it in my sig, that it won't suddenly disappear on me.

Well, the image happens to be a bitmap (bmp), which this site cannot accept unless I convert it to a 'jpg'.

So, how do I convert an image so that I could post it in the gallery?  Evidently I can't just change the last three letters of the image, which is what I tried to do.

I was wondering that exact same thing, actually.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I know how I'd do it.  I use IrfanView as my image viewer/converter, So I'd load it into IrfanView and then save it as a *.jpg.  It's freeware, so other than the time it takes to download it and install it, there's no cost, but you may already have a program that can do the same.

My ballot:
Ervin(I) Gov.
Sellers(D) Lt. Gov.
Hammond(R) Sec. of State
Diggs(D) Att. Gen.
Herbert(D) Comptroller Gen.
Spearman(R) Supt. of Education
DeFelice(American) Commissioner of Agriculture
Hutto(D/Working Families) US Sen (full)
Scott(R) US Sen (special)
Geddings(Labor) US House SC-2
Quinn(R) SC House District 69
TBD: Lex 1 School Board
Yes: Am. 1 (allow charity raffles)
No: Am. 2 (end election of the Adj. General)
No: Local Sales Tax
Yes: Temp Beer/Wine Permits

Open the image up in MS Paint, go File > Save As and in the dialog box, go under "Save as type" and select .jpg from the dropdown menu.
