I am Gopal from India, working with image processing.

First
 of all i would like to thank you for preparing this wonderful Tiff
library.

> 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
 this.

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.

Thanks,

Lee.
