My friend took a picture of me with her cell phone and then emailed it to me. I clicked on download and saved it in a folder in My Pictures. The problem is that no matter which program I'm using (Gimp. IrFanview, or Paint), I get the same message, and the picture won't open. The message that I'm getting is that it's an art file and therefore not supported. Here is a picture of what the screen says when trying to open with Gimp:http://i11.tinypic.com/4g635nn.jpg
As you can see in the image below, in my my email, the picture says that it's a jpeg file.
1. Why is this happening?
2. How can I change the file type on not just this image, but on others as well?
Thanks for your help!
