Is there a way to change the way FSX saves screen shots from .BMP's to .JPG''s? Because you would think saving it as jpg it makes the file size smaller?

You'll have to convert them, yes jpgs are smaller than bmps.

Use
http://www.irfanview.com/ free.

I use screenhunter for screen captures, it does as many as you want and they're in jpg.

Radar.

I know about converting them, I've been using Paint, and PSP for this purpose.

I just wished there was a way to change it in FSX. Whom ever made that decision to have them be saved as .bmp's should be fired. LOL J/K

I know, I found it strange but then thought that it's the type of software the used for this.
I have another "game" and the screens come out as jpgs in the root (main) directory not bmps.
Odd but that why I use a screenshot capture utility instead of theirs.
Maybe it'll be fixed in SP8 Wink
