I create a tiff with ImageMan by Data Techniques, Inc. and convert the file with tiff2pdf. The pdf appears as all black in Adobe ReaderX, Acrobat 9, and all browser PDF viewers.

I create a tiff with ImageLib by SkyLine Tools, Inc. or Pixel Translations Inc. and convert the file with tiff2pdf. The pdf renders successfully in Adobe ReaderX, Acrobat 9, and all browser PDF viewers.

I’m running Windows 7.

When creating the tiff with ImageMan, I set all the baseline tags to the same values that tiffinfo displayed for the tiff images created by the other two tools (ImageLib & Pixel Translations).

Any thoughts as to why the PDF is appearing as all black? tiff2pdf does not complain when converting the image and the size of the pdf does not change regardless of the tool that creates the tiff.

Thanks,
