Converting Your Images
In order to create GIF and JPEG images, you need an image
editing program that can read and write in those formats.
Most operating systems since 1998 come with built in
software to do just that. Use your computer's search
function and look for "image editing" to find
yours. If you don't have one, you can easily obtain a free
or shareware editor by visiting TuCows.

your editing program.
