I made a DeviantArt account, and can't get any of my pictures to work. Tells me they have to be JPG or PNG or GIF, how do I convert them?

1. Open the pics up in Paint.
2. Go to the Save As option.
3. Open up the Save as Type drop-down box.
4. Select your format and click Save (I highly suggest going with PNG, as it keeps your picture more intact and closer to the original; JPG can leave smears, and GIF can sometimes leave artifacts, so go with PNG).

Here's a quick example to show you the differences.....

BMP (Original Image)
Image

Original Image reformatted to JPG
Image

Original Image reformatted to GIF
Image

Original Image reformatted to PNG
Image

Hope this helped! :P

you know if you made something in paint, and save it,

you can choose wich type of file you wanna convert it too, JPG, IMG, ect.ect.

just try it out,, save something in paint, than you see a window popping out, than you choose wich type of file,

Ok, just go try this....

upload the images to http://www.imageshack.us, then save THAT image once it is uploaded. It should get converted to PNG format.

Oh, btw..... how exactly are we weird? :?

Okay... In order for your pictures to show up right in DeviantArt, use either JPG or PNG. BMP and GIF require a separate thumbnail. When using JPG, use a proper program t compress it like window's picture manager not MS Paint.

I have been a member of DeviantArt for quite sometime now, I think the problem you are having has something to do with the site being under maintainance today if you havent already heard, some problems might occur and such so just wait till tomorrow.

http://xenosilence.deviantart.com put me on watch.
