OK, so you're using IE to browse the web and you find an image. You right-click and do a Save picture as.... It will save it as the file type that the image is — in other words, if it's a BMP, it will save it as a BMP; if it's a JPG, it will save it as a JPG; if it's a PNG, it will save it as a PNG; etc. IE does not perform image-type conversion when doing a Save picture as. For example, look at this EE article:

If you right-click and do a Save picture as on most of the images, it will save as a JPG, because that's what I uploaded. But look at this post in the article's comments:

In that post, I uploaded a PNG image, so if you right-click and do a Save picture as, it will save that one as a PNG. Regards, Joe
