Tiff2pcl Improved

Downloadable Software


This is a slightly modified version of the tiff2pcl utility by Alberto

Features Added:

  • Slightly improved layout
  • Support resolutions above 300dpi — not through new code, but by omitting to prevent proper functioning in these cases, and falling back to computed resolution of the input if all else fails
  • Support for conversion of multi-page TIFF files

What is tiff2pcl-compatps?

Tiff2pcl-compatps takes (most of) the same arguments as the tiff2ps program
from Sam Leffler's libtiff package. We typically invoke that as

tiff2ps -2 -a some.tif -O some.ps

Unlike tiff2pcl, tiff2pcl-compatps can only convert one TIFF document at a time.
