I do hope I'm not being a complete plonker, apart from my problems with PS level 2 I have found libtiff very nice (I'm reclaiming the word) to use.
I know there's a bug in tiff2ps (already in the previous version) with level2 output. As I was hacking PostScript code to dieal with TIFF images directly at that time, I didn't bother to correkt this but and used my PS code instead.
If you're interested, you could get these PS procsets by e-mail on request. It's free under the GPL and includes a utility to convert TIFF images to EPS (without preview) and could be run under both ghostscript or distiller. The EPS is fax4 (for bilevel images) or LZW encoded and afterwards ASCI885 encoded to make the EPS 7 bit clean.
