Many years ago I used to use Ulead PhotoImpact on Windows, but have since converted to using Photoshop on a Mac. I've come across some old .UFO files and I'd like to convert them either to flat JPGs or PSDs. I believe Ulead was bought by Corel and PhotoImpact is now not available.

Would anyone happen to know how I could convert the files?

Thanks for your help!

Since it is a proprietary format, you would need to use PI to convert it, there are old copies of PI v 10,11,12 floating around if you know where to look. I still use version 12, it works fine on Windows 7 with the patch they released for Vista. – Moab Dec 31 '10 at 3:33
Some of Corel's software can be downloaded on a fully functional trial basis including paintshop photo pro. It may be worth while checking to see if your ufo file format is supported in the trial packages. – Tog Dec 31 '10 at 23:16

They still sell PhotoImpact X3, which is what I still use for image editing on Windows 7 and 8 (it still works right out of the box!). Once you have that, it can save as JPG or PSD, as well as dozens of other formats.
