KAP and JPG

I have been given a couple of unidentified .KAP files that won't load in OCPN.

As there is no way of viewing the content, as far as I am aware, I used an online utility https://www.coolutils.com/online/KAP-to-PDF# that despite it's name also allows conversion to .JPG

The .KAP files converted without issue to produce perfect images as JPG

So I am interested to know what process is involved in going from .KAP to .JPG and what is missing from the .KAP files to prevent them from loading.

The files are not of particular interest but I am curious to know the differences.

Re: KAP and JPG

No problem at all to look at the picture in a kap file. Just use "imgkap".

Imgkap can produce a jpg file as easy as a png file

Similar to a question you raised a few years back http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...ml#post2425775

Impossible to say without looking at the file.
Nothing that can't be fixed, as long as the containing picture isn't corrupt.


Use the search function on this forum. Plenty of discussions on similar subject.

Please read the chart conversion manual https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do...version_manual

Re: KAP and JPG

Thanks Thomas, my memory isn't what it used to be. I was sure I had come across the problem before and never thought to look in the archive, for one of my own posts no less!
