Viewing *.tif files


I get a regular supply of *.tif files which are usually several pages deep. However, I am only ever able to see the cover sheet through different image viewers and even when I've downloaded and installed tiff-3.8.2.tar.gz it seg faults. So far however, this app seems about the closest to what I want, but ... .

So, ... does anyone have suggestions about how to view *.tif files. Searching on sourceforge hasn't yielded many helpful results - mostly betas and apps that require a shedload of dependencies.

Any serious help?

Cheers

Hi,

You don't mention the 'weight' of the program that is desired.

Electric Eyes can show tif files. very lightweight.

I also use XnView, lots of options also has a nice viewer.

Hope this helps.

if you want something for linux i recomend the gimp, or photoshop for windows, they do the same thing, then you can convert it to a jpeg or something, but you'll loose quality.

Thanks folks. I have tried to install XnView but quickly got wrapped up in dependency hell because it seems that it is based on FC4 despite claiming to have source code, and ee needed Gnome, which I don't use. As for the Gimp, it seemed that it was requiring some kind of plugin and kept crashing ... ?

Any other ideas? Isn't a tiff file some form of OCR related file? Should I be looking at that then?

Cheers for any assistance
