.kpx File Extension

Developer: The Learning Company
File type: Kid Pix Picture
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .kpx. Files with the file extension .kpx can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .kpx files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .kpx file?

Files with .kpx extension are paintings or pictures generated using Kid Pix, a creative software application which was originally built by Craig Hickman in 1989 prompted by his desire to provide an easy-to-use drawing program for children. The data file when accessed through the Kid Pix application serve as the canvas where young users can freely express their creative imagination by sketching or painting pictures using the easy-to-follow menu appearing on the screen of the computer which include “basic and special drawing tools”, “selection and erasing tools”, and “text insertion”, among others. Recorded sounds can also be added by the user to the painting or picture created. The file can be kept in a cross-platform and it can be retained, viewed and edited using The Learning Company Kid Pix De Luxe supported by both Windows and Macintosh operating systems. For easy access, this data file can be converted to the latest version of paint brush bitmap image file (PCX) format.

how to open a .kpx file?

Launch a .kpx 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 .kpx 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 .kpx files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .kpx file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .kpx file will open the correct application.

The Learning Company Kid Pix Deluxe

The Learning Company Kid Pix Deluxe

KidPix was created in the late 1980s by Craig Hickman as he watched his son use the default bitmap graphics editor in Mac with some difficulty. Broderbund released it in the nineties with Software MacKiev getting involved in the development of the software since then until it bought the trademark and copyrights to it in 2011. Today, Kid Pix Deluxe under the brand of The Learning Company has been upgraded to a 3D version, which produces videos that can be exported to MOV or AVI formats and uploaded to YouTube. The software is a children's drawing tool that combines sound and clip art images to produce slideshows with voice-over narration, background music, and sound effects. Children create visually engaging digital artworks and short animation, which they can integrate with Apple's iLike application suite, which includes iMovie, iTunes, iPhoto, and Garage Band.

a word of warning

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