What program do I need to open .cps files?

Post by vtrahan »

Hi,
We lost our computer for the floods caused by Hurricane Rita, but thankfully I had taken my picture discs with me. There were photos on those discs that were created and edited with photo express 2 SE back in the late 90's.
The problem I have is that I cannot open these photo files created with photo express 2.0 .
Are these files lost forever or is there a program to open these .cps (corel photo shop) files or maybe a converter?
thanks

Hi Veronica,

Unfortunately CPS is a proprietary file used exclusively by Corel Photo House, which is no longer available.

I'm sending you both a PM and an email (to the email address you provided when you registered with this forum)..

I, too, am having problems. I no longer have access to the Photo House program but have cherished photos and WWI & WWII paperwork that was scanned using this program that I can no longer open.

Is there any way to convert these photos? I have the newer versions of Paint Shop Pro, but no luck.

Sadly I too no longer have access to that program, and without it, I can't think of any way to convert those files so that a current program will be able to use them.

I have a couple of old computers with the Corel program on it that can convert these to JPG. I wish I had been able to work on this years ago. I wonder if there is still any need for this.
