Have you changed your preferences to "Never Compress Graphics" ?

on the AOL Preferences Internet Options Web Graphics screen you need to untick the Compress Images button.Might not be where I said,haven't had AOL for two years just trying to remember.Anyone with AOL help?

The "Web Graphics" tab lets you adjust how you view pictures you see on the Web. The default "Use Compressed Graphics" setting will work just fine for most people. This uses special AOL technology to compress the a Web site's images and transmit them to you faster. However, if you want to save any of the images you encounter and use them in desktop publishing or other graphics programs, you'll probably want to turn this off. Your browsing will be a little slower, but you'll get the graphics in a form compatible with other software.

Are these images from after you changed to do not compress?

have adjusted settings to "do not compress images" on aol's preferences menu and i'm still not able to re-open the selected picture i've saved. would appreciate any other suggestions that anyone might have to offer.

what extension do the pics have ie bmp,jpg,giff?

if it isnt a normal extension then you could try windows quick view, or the even better viewprint from click here (this is only a demo but might help you to get your pics)
