Another approach would be to use our PostScript procset for direct TIFF
handling. It handles
all baseline TIFF (according to the V6 spec) and a lot of the extensions
described in
the spec (short of JPEG, tiled images, clipping paths).
The only thing you need to do is to write a "wrapper" (in PostScript)
that reads the images's
path names from standard input and does proper positioning and scaling.
This PostScript program can be fed directly into distiller or
ghostscript (whatever you like).

As for the performance, with distiller 3.02 on a Sun ultra sparc, it
does appr. 100 to 200
images per minute.

If you are interested, e-mail me directly.
