Hi,

I'm using tiff-v3.4beta035 and I've got some 22x17 inch tiff files that I'm 
trying to 11x8.5 inch pdf files.  I'm using tiff2ps to create PostScript files, 
and then am using Adobe's distiller to create the pdf file.  If I do:

   tiff2ps file.tiff | distill -compatlevel 3.0 -resolution 300 > file.pdf

I get page size of 22x17 inches and the image occupies the whole page.

If I do:

    tiff2ps -h 8.5 -w 11 file.tiff | distill -compatlevel 3.0 -resolution 300 >  
    file.pdf

I get a page size of 22x17 inches and the file occupies 1/4 of the page (11x8.5 
inches) with acroreader.

Any ideas how I can make the page size 11x8.5 and have the image occupy the 
whole page? 

I can send you the tiff, ps, or pdf files if you'd like to see them.

Thanks,

Rob
