Label Printer for TIF,GIF,PDF images

Hi,
I am Integrating USPS webtools shipping API.I am getting label images of format GIF,TIF,PDF etc.
Previously there was image data in the form of EPL,ZPL format suitable for EPL ,ZPL printers in UPS Integration.
Similarly is there any label printers for GIF,TIF,PDF to which the image data can be directly send to the printer? If yes, can I resize the image before sending it to the label printer and how?
I am using C#.NET 2005 as coding language.
Thanks,

I should have added that I don't know of something like that for C#, but as an example of what I'm talking about, something like this:
http://www.ammara.com/
 which is for Access
and I did find this for C#:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.controls.image.aspx
 which is docs on the image class available in the presentationframework, so doing this on your own might not be as difficult as I am thinking.

You mixing things up a bit.  GIF, TIF, PDF are all image file formats.
EPL, ZPL, etc are printer languages.
 In between the two would be a application to render the image format into the printer language.
What your looking for is an image application or more appropriately, how in C#.net to read an image file and render it to a printer.
  I don't know exactly what your needs are, but I would be more inclined to look around for a imaging application that could be controlled through OLE automation or better yet, a callable API in a DLL to do the work for you rather then trying to do all that on your own.
