I'm having difficulties writing a tiff file using jpeg compression which Microsoft Document Image Viewer is happy with. I'm hoping someone there has a moment to help me if possible. I can provide version numbers etc if that ends up being useful, but first I wonder if there is any known issues between libtiff with VERSION 42 and Office 2003 version of MDI?
I first wrote a tiff file with 16 pixel high strips. The only viewer I've found which accepted the JPEG DCT / YCrCb compression format was Photoshop 6,7. I had some reason to believe that MDI insisted on a single strip, so tried that form. No improvement. At this point I'm at a loss as to which way to jump.
I'd appreciate any suggestion you might have.
