    Default Need help with viewing pictures.

    Hi guys!
    Ok, my friend just sent me 2 files of pictures and I can't open them!! I am so sad...They are RAR files and I don't have the program to view them. She told me to download the software to view them but I can't seem to get to the site. Can you guys help me? I AM frustrated and mad that I can't open them.... Thanks again you guys!!

    well they are in compressed/archived form. like a .zip

    you need WinRar or PowerArchiver to extract them first.
    Due to several complaints, I will stop using the terms "Babe" and "Baby" in reference to our female counterpart. They will now be replaced with "B*tch."

    Hi,
    Thanks so much for your help! Do I need to download either of those software programs before I can view the pix? I have never had those files sent to me before.... Thanks again and let me try to download those to see if I can view those pix.. Ok I just tried to download the WinRar program/software and still can't view the pix! SOB... Why can't I view them?? Did I download the wrong version??? SOB.....

    Go to the Winrar website by clicking on the link in the post above, download Winrar trial version 3.71, install. After installing Winrar you right-mouse click on the *.rar files then choose one of the 'Extract' options.
    You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one,
    I hope some day you will join us, and the world will be as one!

    another way to view images inside compressed folders, use CDisplay.

    Winrar is not an Image format, it is a compressed file format, just like winzip's .zip

    Easy way to extract.
    After you install Winrar or Powerarchiver, just double click your .rar file/s...it will open in the program. Finally, just drag the content out into a folder/desktop or wherever you want to save it.(PowerArchiver is a shareware, not sure about WinRar trial)

    If they are infact picture files inside, you should recognize the format and they should open with your usual viewer.

    Hi guys! Thanks again for your help! So should I upload the files from the email onto my computer first?? I tried that last night and was playing around with it, but still couldn't open it... Let me try again later... sigh.. This really stinks...

    lol. Girls are sooo cute.

    1. Save/download the attachment somewhere onto your hard drive
    2. Install WinRar or PowerArchiver.(PowerArchiver is shareware and will continue to work after the trial period with the exception of a countdown clock in the beginning)
    3. Double click the .rar file that is saved on your hard drive
    4. Drag the content/s onto your desktop or where ever you want to save it
    5. Now you should be able to click the pictures and view

    Otherwise, send him the pics and let him view it for you, ha ha . Don't worry, of course you'll be successful this time.

    No, I am a girl/female if you guys are wondering. I haven't tried again yet since I have other stuff to do, but will try again sometime soon since I want to see the pix!! They are pix of me and my friends at my cousin's wedding on April 12. I would be happy to share them if anyone wants to see them...

    Thanks again for all of your help!!! If I still can't view them, I am going to scream.....
