If you have a TIFF file consisting of multiple individual images (individual scans of multiple pages, for example) and you can't open the file with Photoshop:
- Open the tiff file in Adobe Acrobat Professional 7.0 (for large files this will take some time).
- Pull down the Acrobat menu and select Preferences.
- Under categories, click on Convert From PDF
- Under Converting from PDF, click on JPEG
- Click on the Edit Settings button
- Under File Settings, pull down Grayscale and select JPEG (Quality: Maximum)
- Under File Settings, pull down Color and select JPEG (Quality: Maximum)
- Click on the “Picture Tasks” button and select Export Pictures.
- If in the toolbar the “Picture Tasks” button doesn’t display, click on the
- “Pages” tab on the left side of the window. The Picture Tasks button will now appear in the toolbar.
- In the dialogue box that opens
- Click on the Select All button
- Drag the slider (image quality) all the way to the right
- Under File Names, select Common Base Name, and type in the directory into which you want the individual files to go, with a dash (-) at the end. Example: MDo-32-32-
- Under Save In, click the Change button and select the directory you want the files to go.
- Click on the Export button. Individual jpg files will be created for each page in the directory you specified.
