Hallo,

I am new to this list, so I do not know if someone else already asked the same question.

I am trying to read a 1-bit TIFF, 119 MB heavy, written by Fuji CelebraNT RIP.

I used various programs, Photoshop 5 & 5.5 for Macintosh, CorelPaint 9 for Windows, Win Gimp 1.2, Harlequin RIP 5.5 for Mac and for Windows, always being unable to open the file.

Harlequin RIP begins to open but then it says "job not completed" without giving error codes.

Then I try tiffdump and this is the output:

====================================
C:\Tiff>tiffdump d:Black.tif

====================================

Well, for what I can understand (not too much, really...), it seems ok. The file is a TIFF, Width & Length are ok, X&Y resolution are perfect (I do need 2540 dpi), Photometric is ok, Bit per sample ok,..... I do not know if compression is good, because I do not know to which compression algorithm correspond the "compression 5".

Has someone already processed a 1-bit TIFF coming out from Fuji CelebraNT? Somebody knows to which compression algorithm correspond the "compression 5"?

And, finally, can somebody help in any way?

Thanks to all.
