    converting fpx files

    I'm working with a client who has sent me a CD with photos on it in .fpx format. I don't currently have software that can handle fpx files, but I'm looking at some converter software.

    From what I've seen it appears to be a file format used to represent graphics at a number of resolutions. Does anyone have any experience with this format and any suggestions for utilizing it? I don't really have much in the way of graphic software. I'd rather not have to purchase Photoshop, since I'm a database/web developer, not a graphic artist. I have GIMP, but I use very little of its capabilities. I also have the lightweight software that came with an Epson Perfection 1660 scanner.

    Thanks for your help.

    The only programs I know that will allow you to view and edit this format are Photo Paint, ACDSee, and ISee.

    This format is usually used for
    * Low-End Photo Editing/Entertainment
    * Web Browsers
    * On-line Information Services
    * Office Suites
    * Word Processing
    * Presentation Graphics
    * Low-End Desktop Publishing
    * Draw/Illustration

    I would highly recommend staying away from this format as it is not recognized by leading web and graphic standards at this time. I hope this helps.

    If you want to open and convert then I recommend the software apps above which are cheaper than your mainstream graphics software and give you good options for editing and saving in a more appropriate format for web and print standards.

    That's sort of what I thought. I googled around and found a few bits of software that are supposed to be able to handle the files. I downloaded a couple of demos and we'll see how it goes. Going forward, if this client has more photos, I'll try to get him to save them in a friendlier format.

    Thanks for your help.
