Greetings,

I am working with some 3d software that allows the placement of textures onto surfaces. Unfortunately, the only textures that seem to work are the ones that came with the 3d software. Anything I produce fails.

I tried opening this TIFF (link below) in Adobe Photoshop (WinNT) v5.0, then saving under a different name (yes, I tried all 4 possible setting combinations). The newly saved file refuses to be accepted, even though I didn't make any changes. The original file works. A byte-to-byte comparison of the two files reveals that they are very different. It seems that Photoshop is changing stuff, which results in an invalid file format (as perceived by my 3d software).

How can I produce TIFF files in same format that this one is? Or at least identify what the specifics are? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to the example TIFF file: http://www.azwebnet.com/wad/bmarble.tif
