Kodak CD question

Discussion in 'Digital Darkroom' started by sanford, May 22, 2015.

  1. I downloaded an old Kodak CD of some slides they scanned. The images are listed but they are folders in the preview labeled "exec". They don't open as photos. Any ideas?

    You need some kind of software designed to render these proprietary files. Used to be a Kodak Acquire Module for Photoshop years and years ago, you can probably still get it to work IF you have a very old version of PS (Photoshop 4).

    There's also other products that can do this.
     
  3. That didn't seem to work but I haven't given up. The files are labeled "IMG0001.PCD" and so on. I have PSE 8.

    What didn't work? PSE 8 isn't going to do you any good.

  5. iMac said the download was corrupted.
     
  6. Irfanview will read the .PCD files and convert them to .TIFF or JPG.

    If you're on a Mac, GraphicConverter for a mere $39 will open PCD files and it's a great product to have around for many other tasks as well: http://www.lemkesoft.de/en/products/graphicconverter/
     
  8. Picture Window Pro also has excellent PCD reading software, handles highlights (the tricky part, due to weird math) very well.
