Now we know the TIFF... Sure is a nice little app that dumped these tags for
you, isn't it? ;-)
The TIFF file is a typical fax file, like I've seen many before. It's black
and white, G3 compressed, properly divided in strips. The tricky part about
files like these is
1) often times, they are produced by fax solutions that directly dump the
error-prone fax data in the TIFF file without any form of error-correction.
Often leads to problems with picky decoders
2) the X and Y resolution of files like these is different. Many imaging
solutions don't support that, even if this type of file is quite common.
But, I guess the above doesn't quite solve your problem yet. What exactly is
the problem when decoding these files with ImageMagic or GraphicsEx? Do they
just crash unexpectedly, in which case 1) is probably to blame? Or do they
decode the fine file, but display it sortoff stretched, in which case 2) is
probably the reason? Or is it a product setup problem, or another problem
If the problem is in the realm of unexpected error or crash or the like,
sent a copy of a typical file to me at XXXX@XXXXX.COM , and I'll
try and check whether bogus G3 data may be the cause.
What exactly do you need to do with these files?
