Andrew,

two but not all of the images in the tiff contain a page number tag.
So the problem may be in the Software which created the tiff or the way you
did it.
The images with the page number contain the Software tag "Ghostscript" the
other three "ImageMagick".

And, not all image viewers respect the page number tag especially in your
mixed case.

A switch may be added to tiff2pdf to ignore page number information...

  Subject: [Tiff] tiff2pdf converting multi-page tiffs out of order


  Hello,

   

  This file http://vs.spiralfx.com/msd2.tif is converted by tiff2pdf into
  this file http://vs.spiralfx.com/msd2.pdf, but the pages in the PDF file
  are out of order.

  It is a small file (5 pages) so it is easy to see that the second page in
  the PDF is not the second page from the TIFF file. 

  A little further inspection shows that the pages are the same, but out of
  order.

   

  I have done some due diligence to see if this issue has been reported
  before; and also I downloaded and compiled the 4.0.0 version, to verify if
  this problem is fixed.

   

  I have a few questions:

  a) Is this the right place to report such a bug, or should I register and
  use the bugzilla link referenced on the man page?

  b) Is this program being actively maintained at a pace where this could
  expect to be fixed in a day or two (if it's an easy fix), or is the
  development cycle much longer? 

   

  The reason I'm asking is that we are using this tool in a production site,
  so we need a fix quickly. Of course, that is not the development group's
  problem; I'm simply trying to decide if we should wait a bit or try to
  implement a work-around using a different tool. 

   

  Thanks for any help!
