I am Gopal from India, working with image processing.
of all i would like to thank you for preparing this wonderful Tiff
> Recently I have downloaded (v4.0.0beta6 > <http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/v4.0.0.html>) this for one of my
project requirement i.e. Export input Tiff image to
PDF format and your code is doing very nice. I have a question regarding
When I am giving an input TIFF image of file size 50MB, it
is creating output PDF file with approximately of same file size. What
should i do to reduce the output file size?
I have checked the
same with few paid software available in the market and they creates it with few MB file size.
I assume that you're using the tiff2pdf tool.
Recognize that the tiff2pdf tool in many instances does no conversion of the image data. It merely exchanges the TIFF wrapper for a PDF wrapper. Therefore it is expected that the data size would not be much different.
If you want to alter the data compression mechanism first I suggest that you use tiffcp before tiff2pdf.
