JPG Files
"JPEG" or "jpg" for shorthand, is an acronym for the Joint Photographic Experts
Group which created the standard. It is is a commonly used method of lossy
compression for digital photography (image) and it is the most common format for
storing and transmitting photographic images on the World Wide Web.

Any computer can read them and jpg files are virus free. JPG files are
pictures posted on websites and can be downloaded as a file. All browsers have a
way for you to open jpgs for you to look at but each browser are different. To
view these files individually causes you, the web surfer, a little more work if you
do not have a PDF reader installed. PDF files offers the web surfer a
faster and better way to read flyers than in jpg. Install a PDF reader
now so you don't have to work later.

During the DeafNation 2011 event, I was told that some of the website's visitors
cannot read PDF files....much to my surprise, so I have added jpg files
as an added convenience.

Here are instructions:
On all browsers, you can left click on jpg1 or jpg2 to view images but they are
not clear until you zoom in. On some browsers, if the pictures are large,
moving the cursor over the picture might change your cursor to a magnifying
glass, if that happens, you can left click to enlarge the picture. If that does
not work you can follow these instructions which will show how you can
zoom in using the popular browsers.


Internet Explorer 7 and above: Bottom right corner of browser,
Hit the Ctrl and + keys and you will zoom in.
Hit the Ctrl and - (minus) keys you will zoom out.
Or if you click on 100%, the picture or flyer will zoom in
Click on the down symbol next to 100%, you can pick your zoom rate.

If you right click on the jpg link, click on "Save Target As...", you can download
this as a file, remember where you download it on your hard drive,
double click it and your Windows Picture and Fax Viewer will pop it up.

Apple Safari 5.04 and above on Windows: Upper right corner, under the
minimize button, click on the paper symbol and move your curser
to the word "Zoom" and select your zoom selection.
Also, as in Internet Explorer above, you can;
Hit the Ctrl and + keys and you will zoom in.
Hit the Ctrl and - (minus) keys you will zoom out.

If you right click on the jpg link, click on "Download Linked File As" and you
can place the file on your hard drive. Just remember the download location
so you can double click it and your Windows Picture and Fax Viewer will pop it up.

FireFox 3.6.16 and above on Windows: Upper left, click on View, go down
to "Zoom" and make your selection OR as with the above two browsers:
Hit the Ctrl and + keys and you will zoom in.
Hit the Ctrl and - (minus) keys you will zoom out.
To save the image, as a file, right click and click on 'Save Link As...'
remember where you download it on your hard drive, go to the file,
double click it and your Windows Picture and Fax Viewer will pop it up.

Oprea 11.01:
Displays jpg files at full size and you can use the scroll bar to move the
image up or down. Like the other browsers above:
Bottom right corner of browser,
Hit the Ctrl and + keys and you will zoom in.
Hit the Ctrl and - (minus) keys you will zoom out.
Or if you click on 100%, the picture or flyer will zoom in
Click on the 'View 100%', you can pick your zoom rate on a slider.
To save the image, as a file, right click and click on 'Save Linked Content As...'
remember where you download it on your hard drive, go to the file,
double click it and your Windows Picture and Fax Viewer will pop it up.


Slimbrowser (Older version) V4.12 Build 025:
I do not like the new version of Slimbrowser so instructions will
work with version 4.12 Build 025 and older and MAYBE higher versions.
Disclaimer/Warning: I have turned off and refused to update my copy
of my favorite web browser, Slimbrower, so if you have the newest/updated
version of Slimbrowser> YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN!

In the tool bar, there is a magnifying glass with a blue plus mark, click on that
to zoom in. As with other browsers you can:
Hit the Ctrl and + keys and you will zoom in.
Hit the Ctrl and - (minus) keys you will zoom out.
To save the image, as a file, right click and click on 'Save Target As...'
remember where you download it on your hard drive, go to the file,
double click it and your Windows Picture and Fax Viewer will pop it up.

You can do the same thing on all image files:
Examples:
bmp; Bit Map, larger file than jpg (same image)
gif: Graphics Interchange format - mostly allows animation
svg is new, better quality or rendering of image formats
but requires plug-in or a reader.


Enjoy the web, install a PDF reader.
