I am a fine art Iris Giclee printmaker.
I have rcvd’ some image files in a .frg format (i believe they are Unix-based) I can not open these files in CS2 even after changing file name to .jpg or .tif. Is anyone familiar with the .frg format, or know of a plug in that may help? Thanks, Paul Fortis, ArtPress, Los Gatos, Ca.

Wow, something doesn’t seem right. I would have tried what you did (put on other extensions), but being curious I googled the extension and the hits kept telling it is "an uncompiled Dbase IV format".

What that has to do with Giclee prints is beyond me. Have you tried opening the document in word to see if there is a document header that might give you a clue?

See:

Not even Graphic Converter can do anything with .frg files.

Hey Alan-
Thanks for your quick response! I figured it out.
These image files are Unix based "Iris" files-so I changed extension to .IRS dbl clicked file-chose Photoshop to open and Voila! It opened. (you need the Iris-CT plug in loaded first)
Anyway it worked!
Thanks again-

That’s a $350 plug-in, but if you’re selling giclΓ©e prints, you sure can afford it. πŸ™‚

Got a link to your work or your site?
