Need Help - Ignorant About FIF Fractal Files

    I'm trying a parlay between the photo experts and the freeware mavens.

    Recently I've received batches of FIF image files from two sources. I have no
    idea what I can do with them; none of my image viewers seem able to handle them,
    including Fast Stone Viewer, IrfanView, and ACDSee.

    I don't know enough about the files to even guess what I may need in the future
    if I want to do more than just view them, but the first step is obviously to
    find a way to see what's in them. I run WinXP SP3; a fairly diligent search of
    Google didn't turn up any clues for Windows, though I did find a few for Linux.

    Would some kind soul point me to an application or a Windows solution that will
    let me open those files, and preferably at little or no cost since this may turn
    out to be a one-time need?

    All suggestions welcomed. TIA.

    Fractal*.FIF (Iterated Systems Fractal) The Fractal Image Format is a
    resolution independant format defined by Iterative Systems.

    From the first hit of my google search.

    It seems to me I heard somewhere that Don Kirkman wrote in article

    Suggestions from Dewey Edwards and Jon in alt.comp.freeware look good; I've
    downloaded both apps [EyeBrow 1.0.1 and Image Eye 7.3] and will start testing
    tomorrow. Many thanks.
