    .SCN Files?

    A friend has an image file with the .scn extension as part of their uni coursework. What program do they need to open it or convert it as they need to put it in an assignment they're writing?

    Many thanks.

    Or it could be a pinnacle saved document, or it could equally be a saved scan. Without knowing why they have that file and who gave them the file it would be difficult to imagune what you would need to open the file
