    Hi Prissy,
    Welcome to TalkGraphics
    This is a problem that has happened to me also when I used PI8 and was never able to find a solution unfortunately.
    You could try renaming a copy of the original and right click Open with PhotoImpact? No idea if that would work but it's worth a try.

    Hopefully someone here can be more helpful to you.
    Good luck

    Thanks Kiwi for your response.. I tried it and it didn't work.
    I can't believe there is no solution for this.
    I'm wondering if I uninstall PI and reinstall it if that would work..
    I just don't want to do that because then I have to add on plugins & such..
    I may do it anyway..

    thanks

    Perhaps you could post a zipped copy of the file here if it's not too big. Maybe somebody here could open it for you.
    Here's another interesting trick I discovered. You could right click a .ufo file, select copy, launch PI and from the menu Edit/ Paste/Paste as a new image. The file opens with the layers intact. Perhaps this could work on your problem file? Not sure, but might be worth trying...

    I tried copy/paste into PI... same error..
    I tried attaching a zip and it wouldn't let me.. perhaps its too large.

    thanks

    How big is it Prissy?
    Could that be why Photo Impact won't open it?

    Find a way to upload it to here, before you think about uninstalling PI, which I don't think will solve the problem.

    16 MB.. I checked and I can open large UFO's...
    zipped I think it was something like 17000kb

    Or just bite the bullet and redo everything... files do get corrupted sometimes.

    I think if I tried to open that, my computer would fall over!
    Better do like GM says and put it in the "TooHard" basket ... Sorry
