Hello,

would a patch to tiff2ps modifying the output postscript code to read the raster data as one image be welcome?

The current beviour of tiff2ps with level 2 output is to write a postscript file that reads each strip of the input tiff as a 'subimage'. This results in rows of images in the output, which was 'inconvenient' for our further processing.

I wrote a patch vs. version 3.9.6 modifying the output to read the data with just one image operation. With the patch tiff2ps behaves as before until a -B switch is used.

I would be glad to contribute and send the patch for inspection by somebody more into libtiff than me.
