Delphi doesn't come with TIF support, but you can easily add this, use GraphicEx to add tiff support and more to Delphi

http://www.efg2.com/Lab/Library/Delphi/Graphics/FileFormatsAndConversion.htm for interesting links. :-)

In the past I've used the Envision Image Library from http://www.intervalsoftware.com/envision.html with very good results when working with Fax files, which are basically multi-image TIFF files. It's a commercial product, though.

Well I need TIFF to work with fax, the thing is that I got EMF file that I have to convert to TIFF in order to send a fax.

I check GraphicEx, but it seems it only converts from tif to jpeg, I need from emf to tif.

JeePeeTee, read the question. It's not about how to send a fax but how to generate a TIF file from another image format. In the past I had to do something similar, and I had good results with the Envision library. Good enough to even purchase the license, which for me is a bit rare since I prefer free open-source code. The code comes with a few examples and the site has a forum somewhere. (It's been a while since I worked withthis software, though.)
Basically, convertion from EMF to TIFF just means you draw the contents of the EMF file on the canvas of the TIFF object. Then do with the TIFF whatever you like.

GraphicEx is a nice library too (and free) but it mostly support read-only actions from the different file formats. It can't write most of them, which is a bit of a flaw in such a usable component.

Thats for sure but the link i send you converts it to its own format from and back to Tiff. It isnt Tiff that is send out but their own format they use.
