    A very good alternative and excellent observation I might add. However, I am so use to just being able to click the image to enlarge, I never thought to use the right-click menu. I also just noticed that I was telling the OP to save as a jpg file when my process was creating a png image (dummy me). Again, thank you 4wd.

    Anyway, I think the OP has a great idea to just mark this thread as solved and/or request admin to delete it entirely so he can start a new thread.

    Honestly, neither did I think of right clicking and viewing. I should have realized that when I saw that I could save to disk. Yes I'll mark this as solved and create a new thread with my original unsolved question and re-attach the image. I'll do that later. Gotta run. Thank you again for the time and effort and help you showed me. Truly appreciated!
