Opening PPF files

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

What is a PPF file?

The .ppf file extension is commonly used for image files. The PPF Image files are created by using Corel Picture Publisher. Corel Picture Publisher is an image editing software which allows users to produce professional photographic effects and also developed and enhanced images that can be used in Web content and graphics features.

And when the user uses the program for editing images, the .ppf file is generated to save the information, edit and changes made in the picture. PPF stands for Picture Publisher file and it contains a bitmap image in binary form.

Picture Publisher versions 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 utilized the .ppf images. Unfortunately, with this a lot of versions released, technical support for Picture Publisher is no longer available. But users can still utilize PPF files provided the CoreDraw software is available in any version.

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.
