I got some pictures I took sent to me via email & they are in a different file format Ive never seen before. I had to disable my firewall first.Then I had to right click on the picture icon & go to properties then click on unblock. Then I used windows picture & fax viewer to see the pics but when I go to edit them with Microsoft Picture It I cant open them. What do I do to put them in a file format I can work with?

Please & thank you.

(im attaching a screen shot of what I get when I click on properties of a pic)

What is the file type extension of the picture file?
In windows explorer change the "view" to show details.

I am not familiar with Picture it. The searching I have found shows that MS changed it.

Picture It's title changed to Picture It! Digital Image Pro with version 7, then Microsoft skipped a number and dropped Picture It! from the title when they released Digital Image Pro 9 and Digital Image Suite 9 in 2003. The main difference in Digital Image Suite is the addition of the Image Library for photo organization.

Forget Picture it...download IrfanView. It's free, and a thousand times better. Try it.
