      I have tried 100numerous times to change fax and scan image from automatic jpeg save to jpg save. Renaming has worked 50% of the time but now when I try to convert the file it changes the extension to filenane.jpg.jpeg. Help…this really shouldn’t be this hard to do.

    Notes about the JPG file extension:

    Errors in your registry are one of the common causes for incorrect file associations on your windows system. It is highly recommended that you check your registry for file association errors (will also check for any other registry errors).

    The JPG file type is primarily associated with ‘JPEG/JIFF Image’. A lossy bitmap image format used by digital cameras and to display photographs on the Web (along with many other like uses). If you plan to edit a JPEG file save it first as a BMP or other lossless bitmap format. Edit that and then use SaveAs to resave as a JPEG file. If you edit and reedit a JPEG file you will suffer a compression loss on each read/save operation.

    I have Windows 7 and using fax and scan it automatically saves the file as. Jpeg. I have tried renaming the file and it renames the file filename.jpg.jpeg
    . No amount of pounding or save as will delete the jpeg extension. Totally frustrating, not to mention, time consuming.
