Hello readers,

Someone emailed me eight images in jp2 format, which I can't open. Does anyone know of a safe, preferably free, conversion program that can be downloaded to convert these to jpeg? (I don't want to spend a lot of money for just 8 images).

Wikipedia is always a good place to look to start searching.

Of those I recognize Gimp as being free, and though notoriously hard to learn, opening a file and saving it with a different extension is certainly easy enough.
Likewise Irfanviewis free, and thought of as many times simpler than Gimp (unless you have to start installing plug ins to get it to work).

The software that comes with some digital cameras can also do this, which is a decent option if it's something that's already installed on your computer. Canon's DPP for example.
