Convert TIFF to PDF

To convert TIFF files to PDF in a program or script, one can use the versatile ImageMagick "convert" program (http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php). To merge three TIFF files, you could use:

convert.exe page1.tiff page2.tiff page3.tiff output.pdf

You can also use it to convert a single multipage TIFF file into a PDF file, but for large files ImageMagick needs a lot of memory and processing might be slow.

There's a much better solution in this case; just use the tiff2pdf program from the Tiff library. It's available for Windows from the GnuWin project: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/tiff.htm . For tiff2pdf.exe to run, you'll also need to include the libtiff3.dll, jpeg62.dll and zlib1.dll libraries in the same directory. You can find the last two here: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/jpeg.htm and http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/zlib.htm

The command syntax is different from ImageMagick's but equally simple:

tiff2pdf.exe -o output.pdf largefile.tiff

Comments

Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum
it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.

Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers?
I'd definitely appreciate it.

Its like you learn my mind! You seem to understand a lot about this, like you wrote the guide in it or something.
I feel that you can do with a few p.c. to drive the
message house a little bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.
A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
