Does anyone know how I can open a *.mdi picture file? I researched it a bit and it seems it opens with Office 2003 or higher. I only have Office XP, so are there any free programs that can do it?

By any chance did you do a search for "mdi viewers" ?

From what I read, you could attempt to save the file as a TIFF file, which many applications can open (IrfanView, for example).
Just a stab in the dark, but it might work.

Irfanview
The best general purpose daily image viewer besides XnView. Irfanview is tiny and has useful options like sharpen and blur, along with various color and contrast options. A quite unique thing about Irfanview is that it can play almost any video and sound file too.
XnView is another image viewer which directly competes with irfanview. It has MDI as the main difference, so you can keep multiple images in one window. In the end you'll probably want both installed, they both have their strengths. XnView is multi-platform..

Thanks y'all. I got both of the above programs, but they wouldn't open the file. I don't understand what jgweed meant by saving it as a TIFF file (I can't open it, how do I save it?). My Father managed to open it at work. It was his file anyway.

Thanks for the help.
