Hi Jaw69,

Do you mean for jpg, gif, png, bmp etc. or only for one type?
Did you maybe recently install a program for photoediting?
And if you could post a screenshot, that would be helpful too:)

I suspect the settings for 'image' in the registry got messed up, but need to know more:)

Cheers,
Sarah.

Well Sarah,
It seems like "any" picture I right-click on, I'm not able(any more..) to get and put ,either on my desktop or in my pictures folder. NO options are there...really wierd.. IF--you could possile help..I'd really appreciate it.
The reason I'm giving this to you is because, I just happen to be going through my "favorities"..found this--saw your "response".. If I hadn't of done this, I would never of known--you even responded?!
Sincerely,
Ole' Joe
P.S.: No I haven't installed any Photo/type programs....

Edit by mod. No personal emails please. This is for your own security.

can you right click a picture in safemode? Restart the computer and tap F8 right when it starts up and then choose safe mode with the arrow keys on the keyboard and press enter.

How will this "repair" the problem??? Or, even show where the problem is, and just exactly "how" to "fix" it???
Just curious.....

Hi Jaw69,

Just noticed - you use Windows 7?
I have Vista, no Windows 7.
Don't know if the registry values will be the same then.
I'll look up 'image' in the registry on my machine and post back.

Edit: because jpg, gif, bmp etc. have the value 'perceivedType: image' so I take it there is something wrong with this value.
Anybody who has a different idea - please jump in ;)

This is all I could find so far (there are hundreds of keys with image in the name!) which might be relevant.
I suspect there is something wrong with these values in your registry, but since you use Windows 7 it might be possible these values ought to be different, so that is not getting us very far :(

Is there someone using Windows 7 who can check this?

@ Jaws69 I once discovered that cleaning out the 'internet history' files on my computer did the trick. Before cleaning those files I could only save pictures as bmp. No other options. After cleaning I could save pics again as jpg etc.

Just my 10 cents worth ....
Don't know if this is the answer to your problem ....
