Hi,

This question is only loosely TIFF related, but hopefully somebody can help.

I have a printer that is capable of printing TIFF files directly (ie. no PostScript wrapper)

I also have TIFF files on my WinNT machine.

The catch is, how do I send my TIFF files directly to my printer?

If I just drag the files to the printer icon, Imaging for Windows starts and prints the image through the PostScript driver. This isn't what I want.

I do have lpr as a last resort, but I'm hoping that somebody has figured out a better way. ie. I can't expect all my customers to have lpr installed.

Thanks much,
Terry Wells
