    I have a user here who needs to be able to view & print Photoshop & Illustrator CS (and ideally, CS2 since they may be upgrading soon) files. Photoshop files just need to be printed (and formatted for such with the needed options obviously), and Illustrator files need to be able to be rasterized at various resolutions, and set up to print. I'd like to get this done for them without recommending another $1000 license of the software.

    Corel Draw does most of the stuff they need, but it's CS support is spotty and CS2 support worse...plus its another piece of software for everyone to learn. But it's a ton cheeper. Anything out there in the freeware arena (or on the cheep) for that'll handle this?

    Thanks <3
