.art File Extension

Developer: America Online Inc.
File type: AOL Compressed Bitmap Image File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .art. Files with the file extension .art can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .art files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .art file?

An AOL compressed bitmap image file can be opened and viewed using the AOL File Viewer application. These AOL compressed bitmap image files can also be exported to different digital file formats that are supported by many digital image development and editing applications, and this can be done with the AOL File Viewer software. The content of an AOL compressed bitmap image file is integrated with digital graphics compression specifications mostly used for compressing bitmap images and vector graphics. Data encoding standards are also implemented into the content of an AOL compressed bitmap image file in order to store its content in the ART file format. Appended with the .art extension, these AOL compressed bitmap image files can only be viewed using the AOL File Viewer, and this is the reason why this program has a feature that can be used to export these AOL compressed bitmap image files into other widely used digital image file formats. Other programs use the ART file format, but not for the same purpose as how the AOL File Viewer application uses these ART files.

how to open a .art file?

Launch a .art file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .art file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .art files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .art file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .art file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .art files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .art. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
