Looking through old images I have downloaded over the years, there are many that now can't be viewed. All I get is a little red cross or "not valid". The three types of images I can't view are "PhotoSuite Image", "Art File", and "File". Is it possible to download a programme or programmes that make it possible to view these images? Or are they destined never to be viewed again? Any advice would be appreciated.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ART Filename extension .art
Developed by America Online (AOL)

ART is a proprietary image file format used mostly by the America Online (AOL) client software. Internet Explorer used to be able to display ART images but now is no longer capable."

But this free program looks like it can view and convert these files, it will hopefully be able to do the other ones as well.


Here's what formats it can convert.....
