I've searched a lot to find a tool to convert .qmg files to .png, I didn't find a good source that's why I post a question here

  • what is qmg file ?

    QMG files are included as part of a Samsung mobile phone theme. Samsung themes are created
    using the Samsung Theme Designer application. When a designer exports a theme, QMG files
    are compiled and packaged into an SMT file along with an XML file that specifies where the QMG files are displayed in the theme

  • what is png file ?

    Portable Network Graphics (PNG ), is a raster graphics file format that supports lossless data compression. PNG was created as an improved, non-patented replacement for Graphics Interchange Format (GIF), and is the most used lossless image compression format on the Internet.

  • Does the converter have to run on Android (as you added the android tag)? Any other possible OS?

  • Did you read the tag description? This tag should be used if the solution has to run on Android, not if it’s related to Android (which I also explained in my edit comment).

There is an app called Qmg2Png which can convert ".qmg" files to PNGs. The limitation ( probably )is that it depends on the android device to implement low level conversion.

That is to say, your ( presumably Samsung's )phone must include native libraries that implement the loading of QMG image into android bitmap object. As the format is proprietary, it's editing program doesn't seem to be available. The UI of qmg2png With this app, conversion to PNG is possible, but reverse of that seems very difficult.

  • On a side note, I seek to convert PNGs to QMG, if you find a way to do that, do inform me please.
