How to convert file type .zdl to .jpg?

I want to convert a .zdl format file to something more usable. the design came out great and now I'd like to be able to add text to it...but still retain the original design unchanged. any suggestions?

I'm finding that .zdl is the file format for Avery DesignPro? If this is the case it's a proprietary format (for use with that application only), so your best option would be to open the file in the original program and try to export or save as another format. Good options for export are PDF, TIFF, and if necessary JPG at as high of a resolution as it will let you. If you save as a PDF, Adobe Illustrator may still be able to interpret the individual elements within the file. If you don't have Illustrator then Photoshop will flatten your file, but you'll at least be able to reopen the same artwork and add new elements on top.

If you don't have either of those programs don't worry? PDF, TIFF, and JPG are so universal most imaging apps will understand what's going on.

thanks so much for your insight. I ended up scanning and saving it as a word document - but it works the way I need it to now...but thanks again!!

my software does not offer and export or a save as in any other format. i am very frustrated. Don't want to print it out because it takes too much ink. I want to send it to insti-print. but they can't open it.
