TIFF Multi-page to single-page help!

Does anyone have or know of a utility that can convert a huge (560 MB) multipage TIFF (MM format) to a single page TIFF in either MM or II format?  All of the utilities I have seen die when they try to convert a TIFF of this size.  They try to load the whole thing into memory at once.  560 MB is just a little too large to load into memory all at one time.

Thanks!

Brian

Hi,

Can you have a look at this site -

The software (INFRANVIEW 32) allows you to load and save Multipage TIFF images and seems to support very large files as you have described ?

Perhaps it may help.

Thanks,

Try Using Equililbrium's Debabelizer.
You can download the software from www.Equilibrium.com
Ofcourse it will take some time to download but it compresses your file upto 10% of 100%.

GEM100: offering cracks for commercial software is ILLEGAL and is outside the boundaries of accepted EE conduct.

I have rejected this answer as the answer is a suggested hack and against the guidelines of Experts Exchange.

Look, I did not read the agreement, I did not do anything illegal, that offer was before my ban, I discussed everything with Ian, we came to conclusion, that although I did nothing illegal (even writing cracks is NOT, using them IS, consult lawyer), we agreed, that I will not do it anymore at all, (and I'm not going to, 'cos Otta will inform about it) and here I am. Peace, Ian.

All,

Me and GEM100 have come to a mutual agreement about using the site. All issues have been resolved to my satisfaction.

Lets all get back to helping to customers :)

> writing cracks is NOT

Yes, it is. Read the license agreement which comes with the software; you'll find a clause specifying, in legalese, that "reverse engineering" is not allowed.

For example, look at the furore created by the two co-authors of the "crack" to the CyberPatrol web-filtering software.
Those two people certainly spent a lot of time (and money) with their lawyers, before being required to hand-over their 'cphack' software to the copyright-holders (CyberPatrol's parent company).

> Let's all get back to helping to customers.

Agreed.

Sorry, but "trolling" me is futile.
Please remember that Experts-Exchange is a "professional" forum; leave such childish behaviour behind you when you enter E-E forums.

I suggest that you access:

One thing I would like to know is that how are all the warezs sites still hanging around if this is all illegal?
There are sites which keep games there for months altogether! How do they get around with that and still live free??

OttaCommented:
> how do they ...

The Digital Millenium Act defines how the copyright-holder (and only the copyright-holder) can get "bootleg" copies of their software off the warez-site.

Remember how Al Capone was caught?
Hint: it was not because of his gangster activities.

> if this is all illegal?

Why do drivers exceed the speed-limits on the roads and highways?  That's equally illegal.

The answer, according to the Bible, is "original sin".

Wait until your "death-bed", and we'll see if you then believe in an after-life, whether in Stov'i'kor or Heaven.

Hello all.

I do not want to get in a discussion of the legalities of cracks etc. Whether they are legal or not, we do not want them at Experts Exchange. Period. No ifs, no buts. There are pelnty of other sites on the web where you can talk, discuss and trade cracks. Experts Exchange is _NOT_ one of them.

End of discussion.

ianB: No, we just talk 'bout religion :P (no cracks, we sorted this issue months ago when I just started)

Otta: I did not say I am atheist and don't believe in anything, I am just not christian (you mentioned Bible, you know :-)
