Question: What is an GAL File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an GAL file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an GAL file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .GAL extension are known as Gallery of Pictures files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the GAL extension, please let us know.

How to open a GAL file:

The best way to open an GAL file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the GAL file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the GAL file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

I believe the .GAL files originated with Easy Photo/Arc-Soft software. However, it was from several years ago.

If I'm correct, the software came with the E-Z Photo, photo drive on my computer (circa 1993-1996)at the time.

I have an original copy of the program, however, it's on a floppy and I don't have a handy 'A' drive. On the other hand, have a copy of everything on a CD, but I'm not much help there either since the "D" drive on my current laptop is not working right now.

I'd be more than happy to share all and any information I have if it would help. I have about 20 .GAL files with some amazing photos I would love to recapture, so any help would be appreciated.

The .GAL (in caps) files I'm having trouble with came from Adobe Photodeluxe 2.0's "EZ Photo" vers 2.7.

I haven't been able to remember where it came from, but I think I just saw the answer on another site. I think I got it when opening my first Kodak photo CD, as software to handle the photos.

Somehow the program has become corrupt and crashes as soon as it opens, and I have many photos in there that I can't open. I've tried renaming and using other more generic programs like MS photo manager and nothing works.

Is there a way to successfully convert image files to a common format like bmp or png?
