Could you be a little more specific? What are you trying to retrieve them with? Email? Outlook? What version, etc?
You're really just telling us "something is wrong - what do I do?". We need some details to hammer down the problem. Have you ever been able to retrieve .jpg's? Did this just start recently?

Hey Baby;j ;)

I'm still confused on what you want to do. I'm assuming it's either:
Somebody sent you an e-mail with a picture as an attachment, but you can't open it.
Somebody sent you an e-mail with a picture in the body of the e-mail but you can't save it.

If it's something else let me know. I'd also be interested to know what you use as an e-mail client and what is your default picture viewer.

In any case, I'd try this. Install IrfanView ( During the installation, associate it with all image types (including specifically JPG). If your problem is #1 above, this will probably fix it. If it's number 2, you can right click on the image, Select Copy, open IrfanView, Edit>Paste.

What email program do you use? Outlook? Eudora? Something completely different? AOL?

Then again, Walmart buys the use of the server AOL, I tried to download the program, I have no camera at this time, and it seems that is what it is geared to. Stuck but DEEP. Thanks baby74879
PS When it comes to computers, I will never go to the head of the class.

I'm not at all familiar with the Walmart e-mail client, but you should be able to install IrfanView as I mentioned above (this will ensure that an application is associated with the JPG file type), double-click on the icon for the attachment and have it launch in IrfanView.

If that doesn't work, see if you can right-click on the attachment icon and Save File As...

Good luck.

baby74879---First and foremost, I must say a big Thank You to all you Computer experts, you'all bailed me out. I took the advice and downloaded Adobe Photo, and that did the job. Had it not worked I was on the verge of taking the Glock #23, and the S&W 4506, and doing my own Fix.
;b A Rocket Scientist ---Yes,
But, I know beans about this computer--Thanks, All for good Info.
