1998.12.12 22:05 "Re: bad rendering of level 2 images", by L. Peter Deutsch

The differences between Level 1 and Level 2 output from tiff2ps have nothing to do with g4 encoding. The problem is that the Level 2 output uses the "Interpolate" option in the images. This option invokes implementation-dependent smoothing algorithms that are not defined in the Adobe manual and should definitely not be used on high-resolution black-and-white images.

Since other people have complained about this, I am planning to disable the Interpolate function on black-and-white images that are close to the device resolution.
