what is a .ase file?

ASE is a file used in design and graphics applications. The file stands for Adobe Swatch Exchange File and contains a collection of color swatches that publishers and illustrators use. It is also used in touch application for Android called Adobe Kuler. Released by Adobe Systems, it basically offers saved colors that can be used, shared and compared by different users in any platform. Another application that uses ASE is Alice. It is released by Carnegie Mellon University and designed as an initial exposure of a student in basic animation and video games. Alice educates students in computer programming through the use of 3D environment as a medium. Students are given total control of characters and 3D objects in a virtual world. It allows them to create everything that their minds can perceive and a freehand at exploring possibilities open to them in 3D dynamics. It is also a freeware programming language with early versions introduced java.

Adobe Kuler

Adobe Kuler

Adobe Kuler is a color theme manager software for Web applications such as Web page designing, background and slideshow. Applicable for computers and PC tablets, this program has full-featured capabilities of creating, exploring or searching and sharing color themes. From the Kuler community, a user can browse and explore numerous choices of themes. Other than that, it is bundled with tools that allow editing, viewing, storing and retrieving color themes. In fact, there is an option to mark themes as “Favorites”. Editing tools and other capabilities is easy to manage through the user interface of the software. Also, this program is integrated in other major photo editing and managing software by Adobe CS6 series, which are Adobe Photoshop CS6, Adobe Illustrator CS6, Adobe InDesign CS6, Adobe Flash Professional CS6, and Adobe Fireworks CS6. Themes can be downloaded from Adobe Creative Suit, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, and Adobe Illustrator too, regardless of the versions from CS6 to CS2.


Alice is a 3D, educational programming software that is integrated with development environment or IDE, which is a drag and drop functionality making animations in 3D easier. It is created by University of Virginia but later re-developed and improved by Carnegie Mellon University. The sole purpose of the development behind this program is to address three problems in education programming, and to generally provide materials or tools for computer programming, problem solving, and computational thinking. It is intended for a wide range of levels and ages from Kindergarten to 12th grade and high school to college. This does not require complex semantics such as the use of C++, as simple animations and videos using 3D objects are enough to create an object oriented programming for students to see in learning a variety of subjects, playing an education and interactive online game, watching videos and others. This program is compatible for Windows, Mac and Linux computers.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ase 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, .ase. 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.
