Recommend TIFF Image Viewer and Editor

I need to edit multipage TIFF files.  These are large files, 2,000+  bitonal images, 40-50M.  I need to view thumbnails of the file and a full page image simultaneously.  I also need to delete and insert image pages quickly (instantaneous would be great).

Due to the size of the files and the quantity I need to work with, my usual image editors are too slow.  Creating the thumbnails and inserting or deleting an image can be very slow.

I need a good, fast editor.  Shareware or low price is good too!

Thanks
Blair

The programs recommended would be good for graphic artist type editing.  I was looking for image editing for page images.

I found my solution - Microsoft Office Document Imaging.  It comes bundled with Office 2003 and XP.  Works really fast.  Has a few quirks, but I have work arounds.

Thanks for the response

Photoshop is probably the best - low-priced - not really

Paint.NET is free - although I can't speak for its performance on large TIFF files.

Good Luck!

I would also recommend paint.net or GIMP (gimpshop if you like the look and feel of photoshop).

also keep in mind - performance is somewhat relative - if you're saying your image sizes are 40-50MB - even the best image editor is going to be slowed by images that size.
