Dear All

Apologies if I've missed a thread on this.  A colleague
has been sent a bunch of tiff files generated by some
Adobe app. on windows.

On Fedora Core 4 I have tiff-3.7.1 and produces a lot
of warnings when converting using tiff2ps.
I downloaded tiff-3.7.3 and tried again, a lot less
warnings:

./tiff2ps ~/tmp/img1.tif > ~/tmp/img1.eps
TIFFReadDirectory: Warning, /home/ian/tmp/img1.tif: Bogus 
"StripByteCounts" field, ignoring and calculating from imagelength.
TIFFFillStrip: /home/ian/tmp/img1.tif: Read error on strip 146; got 2232 
bytes, expected 7000.
/home/ian/tmp/img1.tif: Can't read strip.

(was in the 100's before!)

However the resulting image is not correct - seems various blocks
of the image have been moved around. See:

http://www.stams.strath.ac.uk/~ian/tiff/

for img1.tif (1000k) and img1.eps (2000k).

Can anyone suggest a way forward to convert these to PS or
some other bitmap format ?

Many thanks!

Ian
