It looks like the Imaging for Windows product that Microsoft is giving away is STILL producing those bogus JPEG-in-TIFF files.

i know a little bit of C. but pretty new to TIFF and graphic file formats. is it possible to write a small utility to convert these nasty MS TIFFs to some thing neat and standard complaint. if some one can give me some guidance and a starting point to understand TIFF i can give it a try.

I tried to convince them to change it a while back when it was still called the Wang Imaging for Windows product, but I guess they didn't listen.

may be this was intentional. if i were some one who was not able to find out a solution by myself, then the only option was to purchase a copy of Windows.

no wonder it is the largest selling OS.
