View Excel, Photoshop and more With Google Docs Viewer
Google Docs will be able to display in view mode, 12 new file formats. They included files Excel, Photoshop, as well as other popular programs, according to the blog.
Thus, users of Google Docs, as well as owners of Google Mail will be able to open these files in the browser window without having to use special applications such as Microsoft Office package or Adobe Photoshop and viewing files in your browser far more secure than downloading and opening them locally, it also saves time and doesn’t clutter up your hard-drive with unwanted files.
(GOOGLE) Today we’re excited to launch support for 12 new file types:
Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 (.PPTX)
Apple Pages (.PAGES)
Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
Autodesk AutoCad (.DXF)
Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)
PostScript (.EPS, .PS)
XML Paper Specification (.XPS)
Not only does this round out support for the major Microsoft Office file types (we now support DOC, DOCX, PPT, PPTX, XLS and XLSX), but it also adds quick viewing capabilities for many of the most popular and highly-requested document and image types.
In Gmail, these types of attachments will now show a “View” link, and clicking on this link will bring up the Google Docs Viewer.
