PERSONAL USE

Question

Hi folks, I have years of files only I have saved the as RAF and STN files in my archives submitting  jpgs.

Now I want to use some for personal use.

I have upgraded my computers over the years, as you do, but have lost the converters for these files.

Can I get downloads from Alamy for my own personal use?

cheers

Don't quote me, and have a search on the forum, but IIRC some contributors have asked and been obliged (for a fee) in the past but more recently Alamy has refused.

Is the conversion quite impossible? Fuji is still in the business.

IrfanView will open RAF.

Irfan is free.

FileViewPro and FileMagic will open STN.

both are $40 and very similar.

 

As you have probably found out the Perfect Resize 7.5 (=Genuine Fractals by a new name - but now defunct) Photoshop Plugin can also open STN.

The old free trial version works for at least 30 days. However up to which PSP version is supported I don't know.

The trial version can be downloaded from numeral places around the web.

VirusTotal is the place where you can have your files scanned for malware for free. It works both on a downloaded and downloadable file.

VirusTotal is owned by Google.

That brings back memories of about 2004, when I was still on Win98 and ignorant of the methods of acquiring the more famous imaging software. Nice to know it's still around.

Hi all, thanks for your input.

Wiskerke, great links, good to know the software is still available.

I contacted Alamy and they gave me the file I was after for free, no problem!

Thanks, Alamy😀
