Developer: Ulead Systems
File type: PhotoImpact 3 Album File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ab3. Files with the file extension .ab3 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ab3 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ab3 file?

Files stored in the .ab3 extension are categorized as data files of an application that needs to reference the data stored in it to perform the necessary functions integrated into the software, upon request of the user. These AB3 files are also called PhotoImpact 3 album files. As the name implies, these AB3 files contain data referenced by the PhotoImpact 3 application whenever the user instructs the software to display the associated picture album and its data - The PhotoImpact 3 software is used to develop these picture album output files. Since the data stored in these AB3 files are referenced by the PhotoImpact 3 software, this means digital images, text content and other objects embedded and saved by the user in these AB3 picture album files are not loaded unto the application itself. This ensures the optimal performance of this software, since very minimal additional OS and RAM resources are used when this application references these AB3 files. Ulead developed the PhotoImpact 3 software, which can be installed in Microsoft Windows-based systems to create, open and edit these AB3 picture album files.

a word of warning

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, .ab3. 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.
