Not able to copy and paste

For some reason I'm not able to copy pictures and paste them to a word document. I'm also not able to "save picture as" and send it to "My Pictures". When trying to save in My Pictures, I'm only given two choices to 'Save as Type' and they are : ART and Bitmap. I am able to save if the "Save As Type" comes up as JPEG, but when trying to send them elsewhere it says they are not in the JPEG format.

I'm using a laptop computer that has Microsoft XP and the software package is Office for Small Businesses 2003.

Help - what am I doing wrong?

I've tried the control V and control P, the right click method and anyother one I can think of.

Thank you.

I'm guessing that you are using AOL?

.art is some stupid image file compression that AOL came up with. You should be able to disable it by doing the following:

In AOL: Settings/Internet Properties check "never compress graphics."

You could also save the file as a .bmp, open it in Paint, and then save it as a.jpg.
