Hi. I've just learned about libtiff and this list. I'm a former Unix person currently serving time in Windows land. I have two questions:

  1. Does anyone have a working Windows build of this? I noticed there's a makefile generously contributed for WinNT, but I can't get it to build.
  2. I'm trying to understand how a TIFF image used as an EPS preview works. Specifically, if I save an EPS with a TIFF preview in Adobe Illustrators, for example, and then open it in Quark, Quark knows how to make the background areas transparent. I'm assuming there's either a transparency mask or a "chroma-key" color in the TIFF, but I don't know how to find it. Any clues on this?

Thanks very much,

-pd
