To produce quality output I replace images used in Word docs or in Powerpoint (god save us from it) ppts.

Sure PaintShop Pro is not freeware. For professional puposes you have to buy the licence.
But Photoshop LE or Elements comes free with many scanners etc. and it is legal to use it. PSP costs about 160 Euro, as far as I know.
I the program does not support some grapfic format one can always capture the area from the Word-document and save it in an easier format, translate the text and exchange it to the original image. But this I would do only if paid by the hour.
