How to open or view png files help

  Giggle n' Bits 01:15 12 Aug 2008

Tried to recover pics of a old dodgy hdd and the file type is called portable network graphics which I think is called a png file. I no longer have the camera CD so I do not know for sure if these files are actually a large collection of my photo's

Apparnetly with a google search these need a AcDc software to open them just for viewing. If they are the right pics then I will buy a full software suite but to save on dissapoinment just incase there some sort of clip are then thats why I need to know if there is something I can open these png files with

Is their a free Spyware & adware safe download viewer somewhere please.

I have a vague memory that Adobe were trying to make .png files the standard which all programmes would accept.

What ever. Photoshop Elements will open them so presumably will Photoshop.

will open .PNG files. It uses this format as its default.

Tried the obvious, WinXP Pic viewer with no luck. I will try the irfanview, it could be that the windows on the hdd is very corrupt and is effecting the files, I dunno but thanks for all the above links. I will close the post & post back when I download the ifanview

Thanks brundle, MCE2K5 & BT
