What type of IMG file are you referring to ?
A disk image ( CD / DVD / etc ... )
I know that some GPS manufacturers also use IMG file extensions.

Once we know that, we can provide more help.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

If you're just looking for the contents, double clicking it will mount it as it would a dmg file.

McBie's point is a good one, as .img files can also be graphic image files. I think GRAPHIC CONVERTOR would open that type.
