Hello, I am using QuarkXPress on Macintosh to generate EPS Files with Tiff Preview embedded in it. I have written some C code to extract Tiff Preview from EPS files generated which works pretty well. I want do some image manipulation on the extracted tiff images, for which I intend to use LibTiff on Macintosh. The problem right now I am facing is that LibTiff api TIFFOpen returns a NULL pointer when used with tiff images extracted from EPS files, whereas it returns a valid pointer for normal Tiff images. Sample code snippet : TIFF* ptrTiff = TIFFOpen("TiffPreview.tif", "rb"); ... ... If(ptrTiff) TIFFClose(ptrTiff); Is there any difference between a normal Tiff Image and Tiff Preview Image Extracted from EPS. Thanks in Advance !!
