Microsoft Image Composer (.mic) images

Post by Crysler »

The docs say that XnView can read (not write) the "Microsoft Image Composer"-format .mic
I have a couple of old images that came with an ancient Frontpage version. When I browse them in XnView I have several problems:

a) they are filtered when "View > Filter by" is set to "Images" so they are not recognized as images

b) I can only see the thumb while the preview shows some binary code

c) it's not possible to convert them into another format

Any ideas?

Ok, thanks.
Do you know if there's any other freeware or trialware that can access the whole picture?

The MIC format is proprietary.
ThumbsPlus v3.0g “loads these files as a single image (all layers are combined)”.
