Question: What is an PI3 File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an PI3 file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an PI3 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 .PI3 extension are known as High resolution picture files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the PI3 extension, please let us know.

How to open a PI3 file:

The best way to open an PI3 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 PI3 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.

Tip: Try to open the PI3 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 recently received what is supposed to be raw photographs from a professional photographer. The camera used was a Cannon, I think he said it was 6 years old maybe. In my preview windows it shows up as an unrecognisable icon with a PI3 extension.

The only programs I found so far that will allow you to view the files and convert them to something more versatile such as JPEG, TIFF, etc is Advanced Batch Converter or XnView or if you have Adobe, you can download Adobe DNG converter - I would suggest checking them all out and then deciding which would work best for you.

If anyone figures out how to make the images viewable through Windows explorer or windows picture and fax viewer, please share.
