Change the file type of a photo in Photo Gallery

Photo Gallery can display digital photos from cameras and scanners, but it can't display photos that use some file types. You can't edit all the file types that Photo Gallery can display.

To view or edit a photo that Photo Gallery can't display, you can change the photo's file type to a format that Photo Gallery can display or edit. We recommend that you use the JPEG file type.

  1. Open Photo Gallery.

  2. Double-click the photo that you want to edit.

  3. On the Edit tab, in the Manage group, click Make a copy, select a file type, and then click Save.
