 You could use a combination of libtiff & Ghostscript to do this. libtiff has 
an utility called tiff2ps to convert a tiff to postscript format. Ghostscript 
has a program called ps2pdf to convert poscript files to PDF. 

 Ghosscript, like libtiff is public domain open source software. It is a 
library for mainly postscript, but also PDF developers. 

 I've built both libtiff & ghostscript on Win NT & had them working together. 
(I was converting PDF to TIFF).

 You can find Ghostscript at:

Subject: Tiff to PDF conversion

I have about 150000 TIFF Files that I would like to convert in PDF format;
these files are structured in 2000 directories and in order to build a PDF
File, I want to use a specific program asking me which files from which
directory are going to be stored together. In my idea, a little program as
WinZip seems very well done.

My first issue was to visit the Adobe Web Site and the Adobe SDK 4.0 seems
to be helpful to build such dedicated program.

Are there alternative issues ? Thanks for your responses.
