I'm wondering what a "RAR" file is. Sometimes when I am able to download a neat digital kit it turns out to be saved as an RAR file and I'm not able to use it. Just wondering really.. it is very frustrating when you find something perfect and you can't use it Thanks for any help
an .rar file is like a .zip file. You should be able to unzip it just like a .zip file - try right-clicking on it and see if there's an "extract here" or something like that as an option. If not, you can download a free extractor here:
.rar files are compacted with a program WinRAR which 'zips up' files so you can download them. Most people use WinZip, which is a better, more stable program. I've had trouble with .rar files more than with .zip files, so I avoid people who use them, personally.
Hope that helps!
