    Im posting this in a new section cause me and another user couldnt seem to figure it out. When i try to take a png image of an origional ipod app i cant view it. I am running windows and some others have been able to do this fine. My editing software opens normal png's fine but is having trouble with the ones off the ipod. Any clue on what i should do.

    I can't open any of them either on my PC or my Mac. They've obviously encoded it in some sneaky fashion.

    Did you need to know dimensions for anything?

    Wallpapers need to be 320x480 PNG, and the wallpaper thumbnails need to be 75x75 PNG

    Carrier logos need to be 20px high, and no more than 100px wide, also PNG.

    i know, they make it very diffictult to view, but heres a workaround

    download MobileFinder.app from installer.

    in settings, make sure Application launch is turned off, and System File Access is turned on

    find the file within the app you want to view

    notice it displays a thumbnail next to the picture

    click the send button, if you have Mail installed, and click E-Mail

    Scroll down to see the image in all of its curvacious glory! this wil give you a very good idea of the picture, and tell you exactly what it is

    dont waste your time trying to email it, you wont be able to see it on your computer.

    the screen is 480 X 320 btw

    find the file you want to see, dou

    How do you open these PNG images on OSX?
