How to open DCOL files

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

What is a DCOL file?

DCOL files are IFF Direct Color bitmap files, which you can read more about below.

The DCOL file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a DCOL opener may not be able to open all kinds of DCOL files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
