Hi Len,

What you are exporting is not a JPEG but... ehr... image data! You  
need to use the export command:

export paint to file "Picture" with mask "../circlemask"
export JPEG to URL "binfile:next.jpg"
export image "Parachute" to myVariable as GIF
export image thisImage to file "Thumbnail" as PNG

Best regards,
