Opening PIM files

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

What is a PIM file?

The .pim file extension was developed for a digital multimedia file format, which is mainly used for Web-related presentations. These PIM files are also called PixMaker project files and can be created by using the PixMaker software, which was created by PixAround. This is a Windows program that provides users with a set of tools for creating interactive Web-related graphics and presentations.

A PIM file may contain multiple digital multimedia objects. These include 2D and 3D graphics, text, animated motion graphics, sound clips and effects among other types of multimedia content. These .pim files can be stored in USB thumb drives or transmitted via email for presentation purposes.

These .pim files can be opened and edited using the PixMaker software from PixAround. There are no known applications that can be used to convert these PIM files into other more standard digital multimedia presentation formats. PixMaker may not have tools that can be used to export these .pim files to other standard Web-related presentation formats.

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.
