    I have been sent an e-mail with an attachment with a .psf suffix. I don't know how to open it. I use Windows 98, Internet Explorer and Outlook Express.

    According to this site, PSF Central, it's most likely a Play Station sound file.

    That site has a link to a plugin for WinAmp to play psf files.

    Nice idea, but the file is a photo file, not a sound file, and the photo editors I have will open things like .gif and .jpg, but not .psf

    FILExt, the file extension source.
    http://filext.com/

    File Extension Details for .PSF
    http://filext.com/detaillist.php?extdetail=PSF

    PSF Chiwriter PostScript Printer Font
    PSF Insight II X-PLOR Molecular Structure File
    PSF MicroStation Plot Specification
    PSF PhotoStudio Graphic
    PSF PostScript Support File
    PSF PowerSoft Report File
    PSF Playstation Sound Format

    So maybe it is a picture from PhotoStudio Graphic and your be able to use XnView to open it.

    nibor,

    Your welcome :)
    So was it a PSF PhotoStudio Graphic file?

    I've no idea! I had already changed the extension to .jpg and XNView showed the picture on the screen, but wouldn't print it. So I saved it as a .jpg file and printed it using MicroSoft Photo Editor. A bit convoluted, but it worked. Thanks again. (The sender lives in Los Angeles and I live in London, so we seldom meet, but I'll be asking her by e-mail what format she used to scan and send it to me; but at least I know what to do next time).

    Well if it was a image then it was PhotoStudio I bet. :)
