Telling people to not use Microsoft products is very difficult. End user just want the images to open they don't want to, or know how, to download a different viewer.

When I use libtiff to create a jpeg compressed tiff it can not be viewed by Microsoft image viewer (or any other Microsoft product). The image appears as a black image of the correct height and width. Also Microsoft image viewer throws an error that says it is an invalid image. The tiff can be opened by other image viewers just not Microsoft ones. Does anyone have any information on this problem and even possibly a work around?

Apart from the obvious one?
