What are PTN2 files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a PTN2 file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.

What is a PTN2 file?

A .PTN2 file is a PaperPort Thumbnail Image file.

PaperPort is a document management software application by Nuance Communications. The PaperPort software is used to scan and organize documents and share the documents with other users via email or the Web.

The PTN files contain thumbnails for images used with the application. A thumbnail is a miniature version of an image shown on image selection screens. This speeds up the display of images a lot since the files are a lot smaller, and the program does not need to scale down the full-size images on the fly.

These files are often named PPThumb.ptn2 or P11Thumbs.ptn2.
