There's at least seven different applications which use an AFP file extension. Care to narrow it down for us?

And it doesn't even list the Apple File Protocol, which I was getting ready to explain all about ... saved by the bell!

Please don't post the same question in multiple forums. I deleted the copy you posted in I/O and Streams. See here for an explanation.

Anyway, 15 seconds of Googling turned up this product.

Hey Ernest, thanks for the plug. I hope this is helpful but we also have a page dedicated to Tech Tips for Java Imaging and a list of formats we work with. If you have a one-off conversion you are welcome to use our free Java applet to save the file to your desktop.

Happy coding! Hope these help!
