Is there a freeware programe availaible to open and modify the above image files, so that the images can be posted into a word document?

Unfortunately -pops- since these are all vector formats, Irfan View will only open the low resolution image header, if one exists.

The result with EPS is not too bad, but only 72 dpi. It does not support Adobe Illustrator files, and suggests using Ghost View. I don't have a DXF file to test, but probably they also have TIFF image headers.

ai = Illustrator Vector Graphic (Adobe) click here

dxf = AutoCAD drawing interchange format click here

eps: can be opened and easily edited for type, color, etc. in Adobe Illustrator or PC vector based programs like Corel Draw.

Is there a freeware programme that will open any of these formats?

I'm surprised that Word cannot open them. Have you tried from insert Graphic, from file?

Star Office will import EPS and DXF, no mention of Adobe Illustrator though. Open Office is the freeware equivalent. There is a good chance it will do the same.
