.amu File Extension

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

what is a .amu file?

Digital photo albums can be created using a wide variety of photo editing applications, and these programs store content entered by the user and save it in files with proprietary file formats and also append these output files with proprietary file extensions. The AMU file extension is an example of a proprietary file extension of a proprietary file format for digital photo albums created using the PictureGear Studio software. This application was developed by Sony and is bundled with some VAIO devices running on Microsoft Windows (VAIO products are also manufactured by Sony). Users of Microsoft Windows-based systems can install the PhotoGear Studio to start creating project output files in the .amu format and can also begin to open and edit these AMU files, since AMU support will be integrated after installing the PhotoGear Studio software. This application references the data stored in these AMU files when the user views them, and these pieces of data include details of the images and formatting attributes entered by the author of the photo album project.

how to open a .amu file?

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

a word of warning

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