Hi,

I have a tiff file with the following properties

Tif-File:
Image Width: 1200 Image Length: 900
Resolution: 150, 150 pixels/inch
Bits/Sample: 8
Filesize: 131 kB

converting that to an eps Level 1 using
tiff2ps -e
results in a file which looks okay, but is (of course) very large
Filesize: 6579 kB
Boundary Box: 567x432
Picture ok, Background ok

but converting to an eps Level 2 using
tiff2ps -2 -e

results in a file which is smaller, but the picture covers only a quarter of the total area and the picture background is in yellow instead of white

Filesize: 163 kB
Boundary Box: 576x432
Picture: 295x221
Picture background yellow

what went wrong?

Thank you,

Rainer Hoffmann
