I apparently did not make myself clear. I need to send the image to the printer with the scan lines of the image going along the long edge of the paper. This is required to print the image at full speed. In effect, I am off-loading the processing burden from the printer to the front-end machine. Many of the TIFFs are multi-image.
These printers (several of them) are running almost continuously at 90+ ppm. The typical print job is 500-3000 pages, and 99% of the material printed is imagery from microfilm/fiche.
I'm implemeting a work-around solution, but it's ugly. I read the image into memory (decoding it), then write a temporary TIFF to a file, then open and translate that file. This may turn out to be fast enough, but I'd prefer a 'clean' solution.
Thanks in advance.
