I need to find a software to convert from PostScript file to Tiff file, can someone help me with this?

I think that this conversion is a bit difficult because PostScript is a language that can access various points on the page randomly. In contrast, tiff format is sequential, ie. accesses the image in regular patterns (scanlines or tiles). In short, it seems you need to use a postcript interpreter to do that (please correct me if I am wrong here).

However, ImageMagick's convert program seems up to the task.

Use convert <> TIFF+:file.tiff (for SUN)

assuming you have compiled ImageMagick with the tiff library.

Good luck!
