    I am a frequent user of SKYPE. I have a Microsoft LifeCam, webcam mounted and have taken several 'snapshots'. I can find the pictures readily enough, but they all have a '.png' extension and I haven't been able to figure out how to convert them to a format I can use in Adobe Photoshop CS so that I can Edit or Print them.

    Any suggestions or ideas would be most appreciated.

    Thank you.

    All graphics programs should be able to print .png files.

    Most graphics programs should be able to edit .png files and to convert them to other formats such as .bmp or .jpg - you could even use Paint, which comes with Windows.

    Note: .png is a bitmap format, not a vector format.

    You shouldn't have to convert the file format as Hans said.

    Have you tried right clicking on the file and selecting Open With from the drop down menu and then selecting Photoshop CS and checking the box to always use this program to open this type of file ??
