Opening PNG-LARGE files

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

What is a PNG-LARGE file?

The PNG-LARGE file format is used by Google Chrome for storing standard PNG bitmap image files that have been downloaded from Twitter. PNG stands for Portable Network Graphics, and these .png-large files contain bitmap graphics data.PNG files that have been uploaded to Twitter through the embedded TweetDeck browser are saved in the PNG-LARGE format when Google Chrome is used to download the PNG files. On the other hand, these images are saved in their native formats when other browsers are used to download the files from Twitter.To open these .png-large files, simply change the .png-large file extension to .png. This will allow you to open and view the graphics content of these files with standard image viewing applications.

Software that will open, convert or fix PNG-LARGE 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.
