I'm trying to convert a Tiff file to PDF using a tool included in LibTiff (tiff2pdf), but when I'm trying to use this conversion, an error is thrown:

c:\develop\eclipse\workspace\TSearch\TSD\2004_7_18\abbbl-U5SQpc\0\temp>tiff2 pdf -d -o file.pdf TsrFile.tiff
tiff2pdf: No support for RGB image TsrFile.tiff with 1 samples per pixel.
tiff2pdf: An error occurred in converting TIFF TsrFile.tiff to PDF file.pdf.

It would be interesting to seen this TsrFile.tiff. Don't send it to the mailing list, that's another thing that is generally not very appreciated. You can either

I can't be sure, but I think that there's something strange with this TsrFile.tiff (RGB with 1 samples per pixel? Indexed perhaps, the specification supplement 1 way?), and that is most probably the cause of this problem.
