Assuming Yahoo is not your primary account,IP, email the pictures from Yahoo to your primary account. Then transfer to your harddrive.

When you are downloading the attachment, are you clicking on "scan and save to computer" then clicking on "download attachment" on the next screen? Is this happening with all picture attachments, or just this one, and if the latter is the case, what is the file extension of the picture?
Regards,

Right click the file name & choose "Preview" from the menu.
Or "Open With" & choose a program.
The tiny boat is just the icon for .jpg files.
