Opening TN files

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

What is a TN file?

Files that contain the .tn file extension are normally associated with Tracor Northern image files. The Tracor Northern image file format is a proprietary file format that consists of images that each contain 512 rows, with each row containing 512 pixels.

A file with the .tn file suffix is usually only saved in the TN file format while it is being edited, as the TN format is not very suitable for distribution of a finished image file. In most cases, TN files are exported to the IMG file format once editing has been completed. When this occurs, the file is often re-saved with the .img file extension.

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.
