    Why is it that my computer will not save JPEG images from the internet, instead trying to save them as ART (.art) files?

    are you using AOL? From what I understand, it's a secondary compression that is proprietary to AOL.

    here's what I found

    Your right...ART is a proprietary to AOL.

    I've had this problem in the past...I use AOL to connect to the net, but I use IE to surf. What I had to do was go under "Tools" and then "Internet Options" and then hit up "Delete Cookies", "Delete Files", and "Clear History" and that seemed to do the trick when I went to save JPEG's to my computer.

    Hope that helps.

    what's weird is that I did what Mad Bishop said above...I went in and changed my internet setting on AOL to "never compress files", and that worked.

    but then I logged off, and now logged back on, and even though the setting is still what I set it to, I can't save JPEGs again.

    Maybe you can use a Photoshop type program and save it through that? Download.com might have a freeware somewhere.

    do yourself a favor and just use IE or another browser rather than browsing with your aol thing :p

    sometimes you can just alter the saved file but change the .art to .jpg :)

    You're a good man!

    But yes, if you're using a PC then DITCH IE and go with firefox. It's infinitely better.
