Does a full service viewer exist that will display DNG, JPG, NEF, PSD, and TIF image filetypes? In addition to multiple filetypes, I want it to display the full file, not imbedded JPGs. I've tried ViewNX 2, Bridge, CS5, LR3, Apple's iPhoto and Preview, and RawTherapee.

ViewNX 2, my favorite, won't display DNG or PSD files.
Adobe products won't accurately display NEFs with the camera preset values.
None of the ones I've tried seem to accurately recognize other processor's edits.

If I normalize the post processor's edits by converting to TIFs, I still think I see a difference in the TIF presentation between the aforementioned viewers.

EDIT: I don't criticize posters for not googling for answers, but do think they should do that; now I'm guilty of the same thing. Anyway, I just found a nice comparison of image viewers on Wikipedia at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_image_viewers
Haven't yet resolved my issue, so, if you have an opinion, please respond (needs to run on a Mac).

Thanks,
