Greetings,

I am working with some 3d software that allows the placement of textures

onto surfaces. Unfortunately, the only textures that seem to work are
the ones that came with the 3d software. Anything I produce fails.

I tried opening this TIFF (link below) in Adobe Photoshop (WinNT) v5.0,
then saving under a different name (yes, I tried all 4 possible setting
combinations). The newly saved file refuses to be accepted, even though
I didn't make any changes. The original file works. A byte-to-byte
comparison of the two files reveals that they are very different. It
seems that Photoshop is changing stuff, which results in an invalid file

format (as perceived by my 3d software).

How can I produce TIFF files in same format that this one is? Or at
least identify what the specifics are? Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

Here is a link to the example TIFF file:
