How to See Pictures on Skype

The application is free to download to use and allows users to also share pictures via the IM feature of the program.

  • Launch Skype. Click "Start" from the bottom-left of the screen. Click "All Programs" and then click "Skype."

  • Click the "Conversations" tab next to the "Contacts" tab in the left pane of Skype.

  • Click the IM of choice that has the picture to view. You are then prompted to save the picture to your desktop to view it.

  • Click "Save As" under the picture file in the IM. A window appears prompting you to confirm receipt of the picture. This prompt allows warns and alerts you to not accept any file transfers from unknown senders that may be malicious or viruses. Click "OK."

  • Choose a location on your hard drive or desktop to save the picture file and click "Save."

  • Double-click the picture from the desktop or hard drive. The picture appears in your default photo viewing application.
