Thanks - except to 9VSPO.
Well, let's say I find a pic on A.net which I wish to save. I'll do the usual - right click, save, etc. - and the 'save as' options will only be Art and BMP - even when it's a JPG. :| Same as everywhere.

In some software that does allow you to save an image as a .jpg there is one possible obstruction to it. If somehow the mode is not compatible with that format it will not save it so until you make a change.
Be sure you save an original before you mess around with this unless you don't mind losing the file!
Go into a menu that gives you the mode or properties of the image. Somewhere you should see that it is in an "RGB" format. If it is not, try to convert it to that. Once that is done the regular save menu should offer you the .jpg choice.
For example in Adobe Photoshop 7.0 which I am currently using it goes like this:
If you have been working with the picture make sure you have "flattened" the layers. There are a number of actions you can perform that causes image software to change the working file into their own proprietary format and it cannot be changed back until you complete the action, as the layers example above.
If you don't find what you need here, try the photorgraphy forum as there are some wizards over there.

When you save an image in Microsoft Internet Explorer, the image is saved by default as a bitmap (.bmp). You do not have the option to save the image by using an extension other than .bmp. You experience this behavior even when the image uses a different format (such as .gif or .jpeg).
For example, when you right-click an image on a Web page, and then click Save Picture As, the file name that appears in the File name box is Untitled, and the file type that appears in the Save as type box is Bitmap (*.bmp).
This behavior may occur if a damaged program file (for example, an ActiveX or Java object) is downloaded to the SystemRootDownloaded Program Files folder on your hard disk.
