How do I convert some PSD files to .bmp if I don't have Photoshop?

Use IrfanView. Load them into IrfanView, and then save as .bmp

Good idea Terry.

There again I get sick and tired of various people sending file attachments in various formats made with various applications by various software vendors and it gets to the stage where all computer users have to install possibly everything.

If some computer users could get their heads around sending attachments in Email for example and think about what the recipient may or may not have to view or listen to at the other end it may help.

I use Corel X2 for editing Photos and I could send you a Picture in various formats but if I sent in the native format *.PSPImage you may have a problem so I would send it as a *.jpg instead. In the event you wanted the original file you could ask for it and I could send it.

In the past you have given links to *.ram files and if you think I am going to download Real Player then think again.

For me if I want to send a document made in Word 2007 I can save it as a PDF or RTF rather than DOCX. The first two can, I think, be read by most users of computers regardless.

Please note also Terry, this is a general comment and is not meant to offend you personally. It is more a comment as to computer users not thinking before sending off links and attachments.

Also the Members of this forum all have different needs or wants and some just want help.

I don't have or use Irfanview right now but I think it will do the job.

I can confirm that IrfanView is a good choice.

I'll "second" that , I've been using "IrfanView" for years.
Good work Irfan Skiljan !

Indeed I have and do give those links, and I know it is a problem for some, I wouldn't touch Real Player with a barge pole either, but so much of the music I link to is in Real Audio/Media format... it is historical, it goes back to when Real Audio was the format to use and there is too much vested interest in it to have to re-encode thousands of music files.
For example Jazz on Line has over 25,000 records in .rm that can be played via a .ram link, and that is just one site, though they also have the same sides as mp3 downloads now.


I haven't had Real Player installed for years, I use Media Player Classic for Real Media files.

I have grabbed "RealPlayer 11 Basic - RealPlayer11GOLD" when it was available (don't know if it still is) , but not for playing "real" files but for getting the browser plugins, that came with it, that allows easy download of a lot of on-line videos. Alas the plugin dont work with my I.E.8 at the moment but still works with Firefox. But I think that that is reason enough to have "RealPlayer 11 Basic - RealPlayer11GOLD" installed. (almost never uses the program itself but often uses the browser plugin function to grab "on-line content"...)

Yes, I have heard that Real Player can do clever things now, it gets mentioned on a music forum every now and then about how it can grab videos etc.

I went off it a short time after going to Win98, because it was getting horribly bloated, did things without asking and installed greeblies like Comet Cursor.
I still continued to use Real Encoder 5 though for a while after discovering Media Player Classic, as free encoders were not so common then.

If you are into grabbing on-line videos sometimes "WebVideoCap (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/web_video_capture.html)" can be of help (seems slightly quirky sometimes and takes some getting use to with respect to functioning and use - but great little apparatus)
(sometimes one programs is of help sometimes another)
Download for "WebVideoCap (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/web_video_capture.html)" is at the bottom of the page....

Also link to "Real Player" here (http://download.cnet.com/RealPlayer/3000-2071_4-10073040.html) but you might get thrown around or getting a newer version than advertized (just take "basic" anyway - the free one) , CNet site specs for that download here (http://download.cnet.com/RealPlayer/3010-2071_4-10782379.html) .
