Most photos on the net when downloaded, are given an .art suffix. How do you convert this into jpeg?

While the answer is adequate...a $150 program is not what I'm looking for. While downloading in Explorer...all pictures are saved as bmp or art...while I can save it in bmp, the resolution is mediocre at best. While the orriginal pictures are in .jpg, they are saved in .art which retains the orriginal resolution much better than .bmp. What I am hoping for, is a simple or at least "cheap!" (ie freeware) method for either converting (as photoshop, frontpage, ms publisher,etc do not recognize .art) to either Save from the web orriginally, or convert once saved.
Thanks

Interesting that .jpeg files are saved as .art. This is not standard procedure for IE.  Are you by any chance on AOL? Next time try right clicking the image and in the Save as type box see if jpeg shows up.  If it doesn't, either you have a non standard version of IE or the picture was not posted as jpeg.

Instead of trying to save your image, you could try to copy and paste it right off your browser and then into the program you want to use it in.
Then save it in that program.

Just a suggestion.

I too question the ".art" file type.  First Publisher .ART files are black and white images (1 bit) used as clip art by First Publisher.  If you are downloading .ART files it will be difficult to find a viewer.  Try shareware.com or download.com and search for "First Publisher", .ART files, etc.  A great shareware utility that will open and convert any bitmap file type (sorry not .art) is ACDSee.  You will find ACDSee at the above shareware sites.

Good luck!
