    If it is not a digital photo than that means you have to scan it in.

    If it is on the computer that means it is a digital photo and you should be able to open it and go File>Save As..., and then in the drop down menu select jpg or gif and click Save! At least that's how I do it on my Mac :smile: I don't see why that wouldn't work on PC

    Open it in MS Paint, go to File>Save as... and there will be a drop down menu where you should be able to select jpeg or gif among other options.

    Edit- beaten to it!
