MS Picture Manager only saves in .png

I have a user with Microsoft Picture Manager from Office 2007.
The problem we are running into is she can only save a picture in .png format.
For our case management program we perfer .jpg's.  Save as doesn't change
the format.  Is there a registry entry I can fix to change this?
On mine, it is set for .jpg, but the save as is grayed out.  
I need to be able to change from .png to .jpg on hers.
Her OS is Windows 7 Enterprise.

Are these screenshots or trying to edit existing JPG images? I don't think there is any option here. Ask the user to save it as Bitmap and then use MSPaint to convert the bitmap to JPG. Some more work, but will work for sure!
