My neighbor made something in an old print shop program.
No one, including me, can open this file.
I've been looking for something free to convert the file but have had no luck.

Any ideas?
Thanks

You might try Corel if you have it.
Open the file in Corel and then save as jpeg
If neighbor still has printshop
have him open it and then resave it as jpeg

Thanks.
I don't have Corel, but the neighbor still has Printshop.
I had no idea he could simply save it as a jpeg and apparently he didn't either.
Simplicity... I like it. Thanks again.

You are welcome. When he opens it and then goes to
File>Save As> drop down menu on the bottom that he can pick what kind of file to save as

Let me know if it works ok. Good Luck

Nope.
The only format in the drop down is .sig.
I've run across a couple more options to try. I'll post the results.

I'm giving up on this one.
It's been requested that I scan the printed flier and save it as a jpeg to be emailed back. I'll have to ignore all the misspellings and inconsistencies.
I could have thrown something together in Photoshop for a lot less hassle.
Thanks again.

My advice to anyone:
Throw away your 12 year old, obscure applications. You'll be doing yourself a favor.

This may or may not work
If you right click on the file and then change .sig to .jpg does it work?
Don't worry about the warning as if it doesn't work you can just rename it back

No, I was reading where someone else had tried that unsuccessfully.
I scanned it, Photoshopped it to death, and sent it as a jpg and pdf.
It wasn't my first choice but it did the job.

That sounds like you finally got it. I'm glad you got it figured out. Sorry I couldn't offer a faster and more simple way of doing it.
Please let us know how everything works.. If there is anything else I can do to help please feel free to ask.
