Do you have any information on converting the TIFF clipping path to EPS?
the TIFF 6 spec tells nothing about clipping path but about "transparency masks". The latter might be treated as data for the imagemask in a PostScript environment (that's what our TIFF procset does).
If you think of the clipping path information provided by applications like Adobe Photoshop, that's a proprietary tag and data format (which is currently ignored by our procset). With some effort, this data could be analyzed and transformed into a postcript compliant clipping path. But, as with Photoshop, this path maight bee too complex for many PostScript interpreters.
