Converting SFW to PNG

The SFW format is associated with Seattle Film Works, a company which used to specialize in processing photographic films by mail order. SFW files most likely contain digital versions of images processed by this company. Seattle Film Works gained a lot of popularity in the United States during the 1990s, but was closed in early 2000s. In case you found an SFW file, it probably represents an image that dates from that time, and might be difficult to open using regular image viewers.

The PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file format was designed in the mid-1990s as an improved alternative to the previously existing JPG and GIF formats, and as an extension which would be particularly web-friendly. In time, PNG files have gained a wide popularity and are highly appreciated at the moment for their ability to provide a lossless compression of images, which translates in high-quality and detailed renderings.
