Default How can I open a .sig file?

Anyone know what I can use to open it?

Thanks Adrynlyne. I did check google and tried notepad but all I get is a bunch of ascii symbols and the file is supposed to be a picture. Go ahead with the cat though, I'm a dog person

I forgot a little info. When I try to open it, it says to "put in the Printmaster Gold disc", which I don't have. Also, it was sent as an email attatchment and both me and a friend of mine couldn't open it. Everything I found on google only says "it's a file used to attach avatars/pictures to an email, but nothing about opening them.

A friend of mine is getting threatened by an ex-girlfriends current boyfriend. He's got my friend's name and address, is supposedly physco with a drug problem, and this girl sent my friend his picture.

I thought that would do it too. I recently uninstalled Office 2000, but I've been putting off installing 2003 (I got a free copy from a MS Office event). Unless someone has a different idea, I'll try that. Thanks Adrynlyn.

Tater,
I'm suspicious about this turkey.

Have you tried uudecode on it? (Google if you don't know what that is.)

Have you changed the filename to jpg or bmp or gif and tried it again?

To what I have found so far .sig is the extension of the printshop series programs. From what I have read most people just have asked the person who sent them the email. to just convert the .sig file to jpg. or other well known format. Or you could buy the printshot program or ask someone here to convert it for you.

edit:the print shop program from what I understand has the option of saving the .sig file to the other formats

Unfortunately I cannot help you there since I do not have the program

Hope this helps

@Wisewiz: I tried changing the file name but no luck. I'm still gonna try uudecode on it.
@Endiablo: I told him to just have her send it as a Jpeg but both of them are P.C. illiterate and it's also a long distance call, he said ahe wouldn't be able to do it (how she sent it in the first place I have no idea). I don't have Print Master Gold either so I'll try Wisewiz's idea when I get home and post the results.
Thanks again for the ideas.

I actually found a copy of Printmaster, opened the file and it was empty. I guess she didn't know how to send a picture. Thanks for the help though guys.
