If you are not a Broderbund software user, then you might not know exactly what SIG files are. In that case, SIG, also known as Broderbund Sign File, is a proprietary graphics format used for storing sings or posters created with a Broderbund application such as PrintMaster or The Print Shop. As you can probably guess, SIG files can only be opened by Broderbund software, therefore, converting them to a popular and widely-supported graphics format, such as JPG (JPEG), is quite a good idea. This way, you will be able to view your SIG images with your favorite picture viewer or edit them with a photo editor.
Now, I will show you how to turn SIG images into JPG photos using Contenta Converter 6.2 (Shareware $29.00) from Contenta Software, because it is among the few applications that can perform the given task. You can even use this application to convert multiple files in one go (batch convert).
You can also use the Broderbund software that created the SIG file and export it as a JPEG image.
You will need to download the following software to keep up with this tutorial.
