Any image viewers that can read .SPP? (Serif PhotoPlus)
« on: December 20, 2007, 10:31:49 AM »
Some time ago I was convinced by some enthusiasts that it would be a good idea to purchase Serif Photo Plus 11, so I did. Now I cannot figure out  WHY , because I have not yet come across any viewer or editor that can actually handle the extension .spp. So I ask "you": Are there any (other) picture viewers (or editors) that can read (or maybe even edit) the .SPP format? Why on earth was I to purchase this program?

Edited for some 'minor' typos...  :-[

Besides, as many other viewers  PhotoPlus 11 cannot display CMYK (jpg) properly:

XnView lists .PPS and .SSP in the supported formats list, so try if it can read the images (it doesn't list them as extensions associated with PhotoPlus though). .SPP is not listed, but I don't know which one is the correct since you mentioned three ;D

Does it really say it is supported? Strange, because my XN View 1.92 Beta 4 cannot read the one *.spp* image that I have.

sorry about the pps / pss thing...  :-[

Edited : oh, you actually did not mention .spp as supported

OK, so it was .SPP :)

Then it's not supported, I just updated to 1.92 final an hour ago, and as I said it's not there.

just wondering, doesn't this program come with a "save as" or "export" function?

Serif only SAVES as spp. Many photoeditor programs work this way, but I'm not sure why. But you CAN convert from within PhotoPlus, in the file menu, there an EXPORT selection, that is the place that allows you convert to other formats.

(Note: the free version doesn't allow as many different conversion types as the commercial version.)

Thank you, Cuffy!  :Thmbsup:
- now this program gives a lot more meaning to me  :)

Edit:
But while we are at it: Does anyone think it "important" to upgrade to the new X2 ??

Thank you, lanux. I will have to visit their forum, and, wow, what a thought: maybe even read the manual!, and just maybe then I can figure out why I was recommended this program...


Why on earth was I to purchase this program?  :tellme:
