    Default can't view png images off of iPhone, please help
    I downloaded all the png images from the System/Library/Frameworks/TelephonyUI.framework folder to see what images I may like to play with, but I cant seem to view any images in any of my programs. CS3, image converter, preview, etc. I even downloaded a super png plug-in for photoshop with no luck. What do I need to do?

    They're stored in a bit of a funky format.

    Thanks, for some reason I overlooked that page. Seems like allot of work to view a bunch of images out of curiosity.

    I think this page is new, anyway, it makes it really easy to drag a folder full of images in and fix them up. It contains the program to make that droplet work.

    More about the iPhone PNG format is available here: Iphone PNG images - ModMyI - Wiki

    To convert these specially formatted PNG files, you can use the Python script available here: Axel E. Brzostowski

    Download Python here: Releases

    Hi, I'm new here.
    I wanted to do the same thing, look at png files. But I also want to be able to modify them, with something possibly like photoshop. So is there a way to convert these images to an editable image, and then convert them back to the special apple png file?

    I found this handy tool online, release78.org
    But it only shows you that image. Is there a way to edit it in its png state? I think i can save the image as jpg with the online converter, but can I convert it back to png when I'm done doing it?

    I'm basically trying to mod a app, and make characters but this png conversion just made this wayyy harder!

    Please let me know if you have a solution, thanks!

    By the way I downloaded Fix Png Droplet from two locations, but they both seemed to be only for mac. Is there a windows version?

    EDIT: I sorta figured out how to do this, i downloaded python and then runned the python script. But the only thing is I don't want all my png files to be converted, just some. Plus, does it matter that you have to convert these png's into apple png's? So far i made my own app character images, and it seems to work

    Default Batch convert iphone .png files
    This program is the BEST for windows users anyways.. not sure if a Mac version is available or not!

    4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download fixpngWindows.zip

    Program is called fixpngWindows

    You unzip the file fixpngWindows.zip, and place it wherever you want I just put mine on my desktop, within the folder fixpngWindows
    is 2 folders 1 named png, and 1 named fixed...
    So...
    You simply put the .png files that are corrupt (and only the bad files) into the png folder, the run the file iPhoneFixPng.exe then press the convert button and Bam! all the png files that were not viewable are now converted and copied into the fixed folder! how easy is that?!?

    Hope this helps anyone have same issues as everyone else with editing/viewing the darn files!

    ALSO HERE IS A NICE TUTORIAL ON HOW TO USE THIS PROGRAM:

    After searching on web for this topic, I decide to make a Java version by myself. It can run on any platform, and convert a bundle of files by one click.
    Here you can find Jar file and source code of it.
    Hope it can be helpful.

    java converter adds "-new" to filename.
    really annoying when batch converting.

    Default Apple Png
    Why are you all trying to find software to convert Apple PNG's?

    If you email the PNG to your computer then the email app on the phone converts it for you!
