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.

1.tif: Warning, unknown field with tag 32934 (0x80a6) ignored.

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