Before uploading a document (mainly .pdf & .tiffs) to a SharePoint Foundation 2010 document libaray, I would like to be able to preview the document.  Is there a way to modify the default upload page or perhaps another method that will allow me to accomplish this?

You could probably build this into the process, but buying a product and doing teh modifications is going to cost;

You can create a custom button in the ribbon to upload with preview, attach that to a custom upload page where you provide preview functionality for TIFFS and PDFS. If it were just TIFFS you could change the default explorer view to show the TIFF as an image in the explorer window.
