Convert ICO File Photos to JPEG Format


There is a software program named ImageConverter Plus, which allows you convert ICO to JPG, BMP, DDS, EPS, EXR, GIF, MNG, PDF, PNG, PSD, TGA, TIF,  and PCX.

First, download it here, or you can buy it.

Open Windows Explorer, choose an ICO image.  Right-click on it and choose "Convert" from the submenu, then click on the "Custom convert" line.

If you want to add other files, just click the "Add Image" button and choose the files to be added.

Then, open up "Save Images" in JPG Format, adjust some settings, then click Start.

Here’s a site for better visualization of the above instructions:

Convert ICO File Photos to JPEG Format


An ICO file or simply ICO (*.ico) is an image file format used in Microsoft Windows for icons. This file format was introduced in 1985 with Windows 1. The ICO file format is used to store files, folders, and programs and is very similar to the CUR file format (*.cur) which is used for mouse cursors or mouse pointers. Their only difference is the identification byte in the header.

If you have several ICO files that you need to convert to the JPEG format, you need to download first the ICO plug-in and install it in Adobe Photoshop. To download the ICO plug-in, go to ICO (Windows Icon) Format and download the 32-bit or 64-bit version of the plug-in whichever is compatible with your operating system. Once the file is downloaded, unpack the ZIP file.

After unpacking the file, copy the file called “ICOFormat.8bi” to the plug-ins folder of Adobe Photoshop normally located in “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2\Plug-Ins\File Formats”. Close Adobe Photoshop if it is running before copying the file. Once the file is copied to this folder, start Adobe Photoshop then open your ICO files. Now, just do a “Save As” and save the file in JPEG format.
