can't be done, mspaint doesn't have any command line options

Hi Vicky,
If you're looking for a Paint-like utility (and then some) with a robust command line interface, give (the free and excellent!) IrfanView a try:

After installing it, there will be a plain text file called i_options.txt in the installation folder (such as c:\Program Files\IrfanView\ or c:\Program Files (x86)\IrfanView\) that documents all the command line options (attached to this post from the latest version of IrfanView, 4.51, under "Fair Use"). Regards, Joe

The posts show three different possible interpretations for the question: (1) A file has been created in Paint and all the user wants to do is save it to a specific location using a command prompt. In that case, netcmh's post is a fine answer. (2) The user wants to do it with Paint in a command prompt. In that case, the answer is "you can't", and David's post is the answer. (3) The user wants to do this with "a ms paint document" (meaning an image), but it doesn't have to be with the Paint program, i.e., a Paint-like program will suffice. In that case, my answer of IrfanView, which has a robust command line interface, is a good answer. Thus, all three posts are worthy as correct answers. There is no "Best" answer in this case, so I selected the first post as the Accepted Solution and the other two as Assisted Solutions, but I split the points evenly among the three participating experts.
