Importing pictures from g-mail

I have watched the video on how to import pictures from g-mail.  However, I did not see anything on how to save and reopened these pictures when they have been sent in a ZIP folder.  I always have trouble saving these in a regular format.  Thanks for your help.

Ah yes, having a group of pictures 'zipped' adds another layer.

You need to save the .zip file in some folder where you know the location.  Then go to that location just using 'My Computer' / Windows Explorer.  Right click on the zip file and choose Extract all …  It will want to know where … select a folder within My Pictures.

Hope that helps.

Another video to put on my list!
