How to convert an *.imz into an *.img file?

Post by pstein » Sun Jun 17, 2018 7:30 am

Assume I have an *.imz file: How can I convert it into a corresponding *.img file?

Is the *.imz format standardized for other programs as well?

Is *.imz just a zipped *.img file?
If yes: When I open it with 7zip I found an *.ima and not an *.img file inside.

Whats the difference?

imz is just a zip file. You can rename it to zip and extract it. The file naming is made for compatibility with other tools imz files.

Ok.

But when I unzip it it shows a *.ima file inside and NOT an *.img file.

There is no difference. The content of *.ima and *.img is the same, just the name is different. Just for compatibilty reasons, the images in a zip file are called *.ima, so that other tools can find the files with this extension in the zip file.
