I have an old CDrom with a database and a parts catalog from the company I work with. This CD has a file called ilustrac.dat which has aproximately 150 megabytes (it is big) and it seems to be a multipage tiif file. If I try to open it with gimp or any other image viewer I can only see one image.

GIMP is able to read multipage TIFFs. Pages will be shown as a layers.

Off course, this image which is simply parts drawings cannot take 150 megabytes. I cannot see the other images. I wonder how could I access the other images and save them separately.

libtiff contains the tiffsplit utility. It does exactly what you want: makes a bunch of single pages form the big multipage file.

If I run identify within Linux I get:

identify ilustrac.dat
ilustrac.dat TIFF 2748x2028+0+0 PseudoClass 2c 8-bit 150.5mb 0.170u 0:01

Tiff info gives me:

TIFF Directory at offset 0x8
 Subfile Type: (0 = 0x0)
 Image Width: 2748 Image Length: 2028
 Resolution: 200, 200 pixels/inch
 Bits/Sample: 1
 Compression Scheme: CCITT Group 4
 Photometric Interpretation: min-is-white
 FillOrder: lsb-to-msb
 Date & Time: "11-24-1992"
 Orientation: row 0 top, col 0 lhs
 Samples/Pixel: 1
 Rows/Strip: 2028
 Planar Configuration: single image plane

Is it complete tiffinfo output? tiffinfo should print such report for each directory (page) in the TIFF.
