I am new to the field of TIFF and I have a few questions. I am implementing a server that has to handle Documents. The server takes in documents send in PostScript-format or any other format and converts them to TIFF. My question is how to convert the documents in TIFF.

Think of the process as two steps...

First you render the documents to a raster image ("bitmap") and Second, convert that raster image to TIFF.

The second part is easy, and libtiff is certainly the software that will help you in that. It's the first part that is hard, and we leave that up to you!
