Hi All,

             I need to convert a colour tiff to a G3 compressed black

and white tiff. I tried to use the tiff2bw tool however when I specify to use the G3 compression it doesn't work. I had a look at its source code and I noted that when processing the compression input options, the processCompressOptions method does not handle the G3 and G4 compressions. Is this a bug or it was meant to be like that? Is there some alternative that I can use to convert colour tiff images to G3 b&w tiff? Thanks a lot for your help.
