.pe4 File Extension

Developer: Ulead
File type: Photo Explorer Thumbnail Archive
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .pe4. Files with the file extension .pe4 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .pe4 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .pe4 file?

The Photo Explorer Thumbnail Archives or the thumbnail image caches used by Ulead Photo Explorer are known as PE4 files. These files are categorized as Raster Image Files since they refer to thumbnail images, meaning they contain the images in a photo album saved in small versions. Thumbnail images make it convenient for users to browse through album images quickly without having to open the image. These images give users a sneak peek of what a certain image is all about. These thumbnail images are useful when it comes to searching for images in an album. PE4 files are mostly used by Ulead Photo Explorer which is why having Ulead Photo Explorer installed will allow users to open and view PE4 files. This Ulead application is a helpful tool for the smooth download of both digital camera and scanner photos. The program is also useful for the editing of photos, labels, prints, greeting cards, calendars, email, etc.

how to open a .pe4 file?

Launch a .pe4 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 .pe4 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 .pe4 files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .pe4 file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .pe4 file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .pe4 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, .pe4. 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.
