    I bought a Notebook two days ago with Vista installed.
    This is in fact the first time I work with Vista as I usually
    (always) have XP installed. For some or another reason
    Vista can not display jpg's or png images. Would somebody
    by any chance have a solution?

    NONE computer (both Destop and Notebook) suppose to display JPG, PNG and
    most if not all other formats *until* the proud owner installing some
    graphic viewer that supports the JPG, PNG and any format s/he wants it to

    IOW, there is nothing wrong with the norebook nor Vista, nor Win7, nor
    Win95. The problem that it doesn't have the graphic viewer to display the

  3. Use your internet machine to locate a download of Irfan View and then
    watch all your .pngs to your heart's content

    Yeah, except for the default 'Windows Photo Gallery' which comes with
    ALL versions of Vista... might want to research those things you have no
    clue about BEFORE spouting off about them.

    Disagree completely, Uncle Joel. This is my twentieth year on
    computers and it never was necessary to install a viewer for
    Jpg's. Problem being with (the specific version) of Vista.

    Suddenly came to the answer. I see it can display JPG photos taken
    with my camera. The JPG's it can not show are those made with a
    capture program. The problem is less serious than what I thought.
    In fact, I think I simply have to recapture it. (Sometimes I capture
    portions of text and save it as jpg. Those does not show on Vista.)

    Thanks for the replies. The problem is solved.

    I don't have problem viewing any graphic format, so I don't need Irfan

    Well the problem is much more than you have thought. Cuz

    - Most if not ALL graphic viewer should be able to display 99.99% of all
    graphic formats it supports, even if you RENAME it. IOW, you should be able
    to display the one you captured or saved to wrong extention.

    - Most graphic editor/retoucher (like Photoshop for example) sould refuse to
    open any graphic file with *wrong* extension.

    Now about your capturing issue, I dunno how you do it. But if you do
    then you will have to follow these few basic steps

    1. You copy to clipboard (graphic is different than video)

    2. Open a graphic editor then PASTE the one in clipboard to it.

    3. Then SAVE to file. Now, you DO NOT just type whatever extension you
    want, but you have to SELECT a specific format/extension then you can type
    in the extension matches the format you chose.

    IOW, if the selection is .BMP but you type DAVE.JPG then Photoshop won't
    open it.
