We have some users that have been working with TIFF files, but due to some issues we need to switch to jpeg. They have been using Microsoft Office Document Imaging to open the files so that they can make changes (highlights, notes, ext...)

I have been looking around for a program to open jpeg files like Microsoft Office Document Imaging but have not been able find one. Is there a plugin for Microsoft Office Document Imaging so that it can open jpeg files, software similar to it, or another solution to my problem?

One of many free options is to use Google Picassa. IT opens images quite fast, but editing abilities are quite photo-oriented, not so good for document images/scans editing.

I would suggest using Paint.net or, if you find that too complicated, you can use Windows Photo Gallery, Windows Live Photo Gallery or Microsoft Office Picture Manager. The last three are easier to use, but have fewer functions than Paint.net.

I'm sorry, I was a bit vague in the problem. The current TIFF's are not really pictures, they are more like text documents (invoices, orders, ext...) I need a program that can highlight words and make notes on a jpeg... must be kinda easy. I agree for power users with PICTURES the programs stated would work, but not really for text.

To make highlights and notes on the images, I would suggest using Paint.net. The only problem is that the text cannot be modified once it has been entered. If you always use layers, a layer can be removed and replaced. Save the file as .pdn to conserve the layers and in .jpeg format to have a smaller file.

Another solution is GIMP 2.6.11, it has a bit of a steep learning curve, but it is free (and very similar to Photoshop).

Here is an example with added text using Paint.net: Example with text (using Paint.net)
