Hi,

I'm using libtiff v3.4beta037 on a Solaris 2.6 platform. When using the following command:

tiff2ps -2 FYD6316009.yel.tif > junk5.ps

to create a PostScript Level II file I consistently get the following error when viewing the file in ghost script:

I do hope I'm not being a complete plonker, apart from my problems with PS level 2 I have found libtiff very nice (I'm reclaiming the word) to use.

Cheers
