Paint only work if you have the codecs installed. I for one dont have them installed for paint.
There are other converters too ofcourse.. The easiest way is just open them in a program that can open them, take a screenshot, save in paint as BMP..

Satisfaction guaranteed!

IrfanView, loads and saves about 2 dozen formats (although doesn't support transparency in PNGs).
If you need music composed in MP3, WAV, or MIDI format, please contact me via email.

Being a Linux person, use a free multi-platform alternative. Use The GIMP. I don't remember the URL, so try Googling it. (In my opinion, it is better than Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop)

screendumping may not work with pdf though...

You'll have to use a collection of programs as each suits...

:D


And I agree, photoshop is a nasty peice of work. I long to write a better version, peice by peice. If only I had known GIMP was a photoshop alternative... I had to edit the last page of a comic submission in paint goddamnit, and there is a copy of GIMP on all these machines...
