I'm not so good with this stuff, but find that difficult extensions opened using "Paint" on XP can be "saved as" another format there!?

Suppose Paint doesn't open RAW?

YEEEEHAAAAAA - I am winning , thanks to all the advice from mites on this thread. I have downloaded Adobe Lightroom 3 for a 30 day free trial period. I have downloaded all the photos to this and to ViewNX that came with my camera. All the photos that do not need a bit of tweeking I convert to JPEG using ViewNX and copy immediately to My Pictures. The pics that need some editing I go Adobe Lightroon do all the necessary and then export to my pictures. During this export process it converts the photo to JPEG in My Pictures. I can now start putting the pics together for my T.R.

A HUGE BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE MITES FOR THEIR ADVICE. :gflower:
