re AI file types

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to read AI file

The .AI file type is proprietary to Adobe Illustrator. These files are vector graphics. Their web site says Corel Draw can view them, but of course it's not free. I just checked Paint Shop Pro as well as GIMP and neither can open the files.

The only reference I can find while searching was one that indicated GhostScript could PRINT the file, but that won't allow you to view it. I checked several of the well known photo viewers and downloads to view different file types, but I don't see anything at all that will view an AI file type.

So, it looks as if you're stuck. If you can't get Illustrator to run, you can not view the file.
