Need Help Convert FlashPix Format (.FPX) to TIF, JPG or PSD

Post by mobinet »

I have tried several times to write a script in NConvert to process a FlashPix Format (.FPX) to a TIF, JPG or PSD and a having terrible luck. Can someone please help? If someone could help me with a script or know a better way to convert an .FPX, I would be eternally grateful. I have a number of old files from a kodak camera that use this format and need to access these files. They are for a funeral of our Father and also to have for our family.

Thank You,
Cameron

XnView (and NConvert) don't have native support for this format. They rely on an I/O plug-in for reading (and writing) FlashPix files.
Download fpx.zip and extract Xfpx.dll to the Plugins subdirectory of your XnView installation. You should then be able to convert FPX images via Tools » Batch Processing....

Thank you XnTrig,

I forgot to make mention that I am on a Mac. I am not sure that the .dll file works for Mac. Can you help me with the file that does so? Again, thank you very much for your help.

You're lucky: Turns out that XnViewMP as well as XnConvert support FlashPix out of the box. No plug-in needed!
