i have some tiff files which were created by scanning under WinNT and written by windows imaging. i totally use Linux and do not have access to a Windows system. i am not able to open the tiff file under Linux in any image viewer. i have downloaded the latest version of lib tiff and tiff2png. the output i get from that is appended below.

can some one help me to convert this to normal tiff or any other readable format.

These are all for JPEG compression - the original stuff in TIFF 6 that doesn't work.

Sorry, don't know that one. It's not in TIFF6, the PageMaker extensions or TIFF/IT.

Was this image generated using Pixel Translations based scanning software? if so then if the strip count is one, then you can find the entire JPEG inside the image at the JFIFOffset position in the file. If the strip count is greater than one, you'll need to reconstruct the jpeg by replacing the restart markers between each strip. I have some code that does all this if you're interested.
