I just got a new Macbook, brand new to Macs in general. I've been trying to figure this out on my own for days now and it's KILLING me, even though I'm probably making a very obvious mistake. Basically the problem is that the only images that are "usable" on my computer are images that 1) were taken with the webcam or 2) uploaded using a digital camera. I am completely unable to use images that I've saved from elsewhere. For example, if I went into my online photo storage album and saved images of myself into a folder on my Mac...when I go to use it later on (emailing it, upload to social network, or even just use it in a program like NeoOffice) it won't even let me click on the filename. I can navigate to the folder, and see the file names there, but they are not clickable. OR when they are clickable (the only time I've noticed they are is for email), when I go to send it I am told by the recipient that they can't see the image. When I go to the Finder and look at the file names in there, and Get Info, it tells me that the file type is "Plain Text", though I can see a preview of the picture...but why the heck is it being saved to plain text when I'm saving them? When I ctrl-command and select Save Image As... I name them and select the dropdown and save it as jpeg/gif rather than leaving it as "All Images"...I thought that was the problem at first, but I just tested it out again and it's still not saving them in the correct format. Cliff's Notes: - Can't figure out how to save on-the-web images in an image format rather than "plain txt" - Since I am unable to do this, I cannot email/upload/share/ images on the Internet or use images in documents successfully. Please for the love of god help my retarded soul.
