> Hi there!
Hello. Please note that many mailing lists and newsgroups prefer senders to send only plain text messages, and there's very good reason for that.
I'm trying to convert a Tiff file to PDF using a tool included
in LibTiff (tiff2pdf), but when I'm trying to use this conversion, an error is thrown:
c:\develop\eclipse\workspace\TSearch\TSD\2004_7_18\abbbl-U5SQpc\0\temp>tiff2 pdf -d -o file.pdf TsrFile.tiff
tiff2pdf: No support for RGB image TsrFile.tiff with 1 samples per pixel.
tiff2pdf: An error occurred in converting TIFF TsrFile.tiff to PDF file.pdf.
It would be interesting to seen this TsrFile.tiff. Don't send it to the mailing list, that's another thing that is generally not very appreciated. You can either
- send it to me, privatly, at email@example.com
- or use tiffinfo on it, another tool included in LibTiff, to dump basic information and tagsets to text and include that in a response, that should give us a good idea already
- or if you're using Windows, you could also download my free TIFF Tag Viewer application. It includes a 'copy tags to clipboard' functionality, that you can use to next paste a dump similar to tiffinfo in a response
- I can't be sure, but I think that there's something strange with this TsrFile.tiff (RGB with 1 samples per pixel? Indexed perhaps, the specification supplement 1 way?), and that is most probably the cause of this problem.
