After converting the file to the new format, you will be able to use other programs to support it. Keep in mind, however, that the ECW file after converting to JPG may differ slightly from the original. The most important information should be kept, but if you want the file after conversion from ECW to JPG to be the same, you have to do this carefully and choose the proper application from the list below.
There is no guarantee, of course, that the conversion will come up to all your expectations, but it will certainly help you. If, after all, the effect of converting ECW to JPG does not meet your expectations, you can simply try to find on the Internet a different version of your file in ECW format, properly converted to a JPG file by someone else. If this fails, use the information provided in the further part of the website.
Unfortunately, if after performing the two previously described steps (trying to find your ECW file converted by someone else, and the attempt to convert it to JPG on your own) you still have a problem with your file, then there are only a few solutions left. You can once again try to find and install an application that can open the ECW file in its original format (without conversion to JPG file). Such a solution will be difficult to implement, but it certainly will give the best result.
