Opening HDP files

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

What is a HDP file?

The .hdp file extension is most commonly associated with files containing HD photos. The HDP files store compressed raster images. This file format was developed by Microsoft. It is used for the creation of high-resolution photo images. HDP files are similar to JPG files, but the HDP file format uses a higher rate of compression and the compression format is lossless rather than lossy.

The .hdp file extension is also used for Magix Musstu files.

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.
