    How to open .bip files

    I have some images taken on a Kodak laboratory camera which are saved in .bip format. There is no option to save in any other format.
    Does anyone have any suggestions for opening these files on my home PC (running XPPro SP2).
    I have so far been unable to find any image conversion software which will do the job.
    Many thanks
    Dianne

    I hate to say this, but I think you may be out of luck. The BIP format is used for high-end purposes and there are ways to convert images to the BIP format, but the reverse does not seem to be possible. My best suggestion, lame as it might be, is to take a screen shot of the images and save them in a more common format. I was able to find this short article that provides a summary, but it appears that converting formats would take some advanced programming. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Thanks, WillyWylly. The whole task looks impenetrable. The screenshot idea seems the logical way to go. Will consult the "experts", who somehow use these images in journal articles- perhaps the good old screenshot is how they do it!

    Nothing like simplicity. Print screen and paste into Word solved the problem. Thank you!
