What is a MIX file?
MIX is an acronym for Microsoft Image Extension. Files that contain the .mix file extension normally store Microsoft PictureIt! and PhotoDraw images. PhotoDraw was similar in nature to the Fireworks application that is distributed by Adobe.
Microsoft PhotoDraw used to be a component of the Microsoft Office suite of software applications, although it was also sold as a stand-alone software product. Microsoft discontinued the distribution of PhotoDraw after PhotoDraw 2000 Version 2 was released.
MIX files contain vector and raster graphic images that have been created by these two software applications. The images that are stored in the MIX files are commonly used in Microsoft Office documents.
