viewing photos in wordpad

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by The White Lady, May 16, 2004.

  1. I have a file with text and photos that I made on win98 Word, I've
    transferred it onto my new Win XP computer and it looks the same but
    when I try to insert more photos I just get a link to click on to view
    them. I've tried inseting the pictures with the link box unchecked and
    still get the same thing.

    I am not sure exactly what you mean! Wordpad is pretty
    restrictive in many ways. It will allow you to drag and drop
    bmp files and image them on the page but gif and jpg files
    will be shown as icons. If you want to insert pictures and
    see them within Wordpad, convert them to bmp and drag the
    bmp files onto the Wordpad page.

    Hope that helps?
