If you have recently bought a new Windows PC or upgraded from an earlier Windows, you will know that Picture-It is not compatible with Windows 7.
It gets worse. The format that Picture-It uses to save as a file is ‘.mix’, one of Microsoft’s own file extensions. Needless to say, it is not common and it is widely believed that you need Picture-It to open the file type.
OK, some good news.
XnView will load .mix images and allow them to be converted to a format which can be read in ANY Windows viewer, and you can get it here..
Note that this program is NOT a replacement for Picture-It. In fact, it has quite limited features, BUT it does allow you to get your pictures back. Be thankful for that.
