I was a big Amiga guy for a long time. Had an original Amiga (which was retroactively renamed the Amiga 1000), an Amiga 500, 600 (why??), 1200, 3000, and 4000. I had an original boing-ball decal signed by R. J. Mical and Jay Miner.

One time, I even almost kissed a girl.

ArkPanda: Sounds like it wasn't the computer so much as the art program it was using. It was a proprietary graphics file for some program that hasn't existed for 29 years.

If the files were standard IFF-ILBM, then any decent image viewer could handle it (XnView does, as example... even HAM6 and HAM8).  But if it was some DigiPaint specific format or an ILBM with weird stuff like scrolling color lookup tables, then yeah, those are a bit harder to deal with.
