Question ALBM files

I need some help...A while back ago our desktop crashed and we took our hard drive to someone to extract some files from it. My problem is our photos are all "ALBM" files and my laptop will not open them with nothing. It is to my understanding that these files are actually albums. I have even downloaded HP's photosmart essential 2.5 and no help..I even downloaded a program called "KONVERTER" it opened the pics but I do not know how to change these files to something like a jpeg or something else more common so I can open them. Some of these photos are of my wedding so yes I need to change them so even my wife can open them..ha ha ha...Is there anybody that can help me...I hope I have explained this right....

Default Re: ALBM files

hmm, ive looked on there website

there is a picture here:

at the top of that menu (the same kind of menu, that you should see) there is a button called convert, id assume (i haven't got the program myself), that you would click on a picture, or drag and select a few pictures, then click on the 'convert' button at the top - and it should give you prompts from there.

Some googling tells me this is a HP format, Did you have a scanner or printer on the desktop? If yes, try installing that software on the laptop. Maybe try going to HP can see if you can find a viewing program for them. I tried but it asks for model # of my printer..


This seems to be the program you need:

It took me a while but I found the converted files made by the "Konverter" program. They are in the subdirectories under the program files for Konverter. I copied the new pics back to my pics files and deleted the copies under the Koverter program files. Hope this helps! B
