File Extension PSPIMAGE

The file extension PSPIMAGE is associated with PaintShop Pro, which is an image editing software application created by Corel Corporation. Corel PaintShop Pro helps to create professional looking images, organize groups of photos in camera RAW format, edit images using advanced features, create photo books and slideshows, and share images through email and social media.

The PSPIMAGE file extension is an image file type which contains images which have been created or edited using the Paint Shop Pro application. PSPIMAGE files can contain either a raster image or a vector graphic or both. Images can also be exported to other raster image formats using the later versions of Corel Paint Shop Pro.

The file extension PSPIMAGE is created using the later versions of PaintShop Pro beginning with version 8. Older versions of the application save images with the file extension PSP. PaintShop Pro is designed for the Windows operating system; however, PSPIMAGE files can be opened using other programs and applications.
