Question Help

Hi -

I have been asked for a photograph by a family member, which is the computer.
Unfortunately the only copy I have is from 2004 and it shows it as a CPH file (I presume Corel Print House.)
I have tried several online programs to convert the CPH file to j.peg without a result.

Has any member achieved converting a CPH file to j.peg and if so how please.

Re: Help

Try this. It works for most files.
Click Save As…. The Save Image window will pop up.
In the name field, change the file extension to the file format you want to convert your image to. The file extension is the part of the file name after the period.
For example, to convert a JPEG (.jpg) file into a Bitmap file (.bmp):
original file: image.jpg
new file: image.bmp
Click Save, and a new file will be saved in the new format. The old file (in the old format) will remain where it was, and will not be deleted.
The image viewer tries to guess which file format to save a picture in based on the file extension you choose. If it doesn't recognize the file extension you type, or if you don't know which one to use, click Supported image files in the Save Image window. This will allow you to choose the file format from the drop down box.

Hi Ron -

Thanks for the suggestions - alas it didn't convert.

I tried another suggestion I read on the net using 'notepad' - same result except now it opens in 'notepad' doh!

I'm sure I'll get a result in the end - thanks again.

Re: Help

I used to do this in Photoshop 5 many years ago. As far as I can remember, I've been racking my brains, I used to select image them "save copy". Select copy image, edit it then select "save as tiff" file with no lose. Maybe the fact I used Photoshop or I worked with a copy was why it worked. Photoshop was a Coral product.

Re: Help

Hi Ron -

I found amongst a collection of bits and pieces a Smart Media Adapter and then delved into some 'smart media cards' from 2000ish. Plugged the adapter into a USB and discovered it was old and didn't want to spit out what was on the cards. Too old for modern times/machinery.

=====
When I right click the CPH file I get 'the file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer'.

Having spent several hours attempting at what seems impossible I have given up for the time being.

Thanks for your knowledge and kindness in helping.
