I have a Imation CD with many Mac picture files on it. The pictures were all created in 1996. I would now like to trasfer them to my old Windows 98 PC. I downloaded a program TransMac which had no problem transferring the cd files to my pc. Opening them up and viewing them is another story.

Most of the pic. files have a .ct extension now on my pc. I tried to open them with a freeware program called Photofiltre but Photofiltre doesnt even recognize any of the transfered files as picture files. When I try to open it from it's folder it shows nothing there. I also notice if I try to open a pic file from TransMac directly MS Paint tries to open it but says it is not proper format something to that effect.

I assume that MS Paint is trying to open because when Transmac tried to open a pic file it showed me a list of programs to choose from and I forgot to uncheck 'always use this program for this type of file'.

In summation I am unable to view any of these ex-mac files and I cannot download and use PhotoShop (as someone suggested to me) since my PC does not have min. requirements to run it (Maybe a very old version would). :thumbsup:

I transfered the files to a new pc running xp using Transmac and I downloaded JASC Paint Shop Pro and I can now view any .ct files. Now the problem is I have another folder with a bunch of files ending with .qxd which my research told me is Quark Express picture files. Is there any other program that can open Quark Express files created in 1996 besides Quark Exp.? :thumbsup:

Hi Rons & welcome to Bleeping Computer.

A google search turned up this item on converting the .qxd filetype to .pdf
using ACROBAT.

I want to eventually upload these picture files to a website. I cannot use .PDF files in this case.
