Hello to everybody!

I've been unable to read the text within the TIFF images the Official Bulleting from my Country issues diary.

The effect is as if some horizontal lines were not displayed thus making letters impossible to read (more or less the same effect you get when sending faxes with normal resolution instead of fine resolution).

After several tries with multiple programs and tool from the libtiff library I've given up. To my surprise, Windoze reads them correctly both with Photoshop and IE (not with native image viewer which suffers the same problem :) ).

You can find those tiffs at: http://www.boe.es/sumarios/ultimo

Any link in that page points to a TIFF file with that problem.

I'm using libtiff version 3.5.4-2 in a potato Debian GNU/Linux distribution.

Any clues?

Thank you in advance,

Juan-Mariano.
