A .SID file is a raster image file that uses Multi-resolution Seamless Image Database compression method for compressing large raster image files. The SID files support compression of varying size raster image files by rendering high quality image files. Further, the SID file supports seamless, instant, and multi-resolution massive browsing through various storage media including CD-ROMS, networks, and internet. The SID file is supported in various domains including mapping, Geographical Information System (GIS), games, medical, and internet-based image viewing.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the SID file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the SID file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the SID file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the SID file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the SID file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
