WPG File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a WPG file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .WPG files.

What is a WPG file?

Files that contain the .wpg file extension are normally associated with the Corel WordPerfect word processing application. Initially developed by a BYU graduate student, the WordPerfect program was eventually acquired by Corel. Similar to Microsoft's Word, Corel WordPerfect is a word processing application. However, unlike Word, the software is not available as a standalone product and is only available when purchased with the entire WordPerfect office suite.

WPG files are graphic files that are used by the WordPerfect program. These files can contain up to 256 colors and support both vector and bitmap images.

The WildTangent software application also uses the .wpg file suffix. These WPG files contain the PNG files that are used by the WildTangent application.
