I am trying to convert tiffs to pdf using the following two commands.
/usr/local/bin/tiff2pdf -o $pdfMultiImage $tiffMultiImage
I get the following error:
TIFFFieldWithTag: Internal error, unknown tag 0x0.
tiff2pdf: tif_dirinfo.c:407: _TIFFFieldWithTag: Assertion `fip != ((void *)0)' failed.
tiffcp seems to work and produces a file. But it looks like tiff2pdf can't read it. Please tell me what that error is telling me. I have tried multiple options on the tiffcp and tiff2pdf commands, and I can't make it go away.
The tiffs are packbit compression. I have tried to convert them to g4 in the tiffcp command, but I get an error about sampling having to be 1. I can't see how to set sampling. Is packbits the problem?
Thanks so much in advance,
