Now it is clear to me that multi pages and layers are two different beasts.
Now I need to extract layers from a Tiff file. How should I do it? Please suggest.
Do you know how many layers are in your TIFF file? If you install libtiff and utilities, what is the output of 'tiffinfo' when provided the name of your file?
My software (GraphicsMagick) may be useful but it only handles up to four channels ("layers"), one of which must be an alpha channel. There is likely other software much better at handling TIFFs with an arbitrary number of channels.
