Anyone have an available TIFF2PDF tool built on LIBTIFF?
You can do it with libtiff + Aladdin Ghostscript 4.03+, although the image output is not compressed. (and obviously not OCR'ed)
$ tiff2ps -2 a.tif | gs4 -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=a.pdf - -c quit
ImageMagick 3.7.7+ is another way:
$ convert b.tif b.pdf
I have also found that Adobe Acrobat Exchange 3.0 can now import more TIFF. (they have fixed problems I reported to this group last year) Acrobat 3.0 now displays bitonal image pages better with scale-to-gray.
