Opening ATF files

Did your computer fail to open an ATF file? We explain what ATF files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your ATF files.

What is an ATF file?

The ATF file format was developed by Adobe Systems, Inc. for files that are internally used by Adobe Photoshop. These .atf files are also known as Adobe Photoshop Transfer Function files, which are classified as settings and options files.

These .atf files may contain code that is related to transfer function settings and options. Adobe Photoshop is a graphics authoring and editing application that allows users to create and edit images, photos and other digital graphics in various formats. This software has versions for PCs and Mac computers.

It's recommended to leave these ATF files alone. Since these .atf files are used internally by Adobe Photoshop, tampering with these files may cause some problems with the associated functions and settings of this software.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
