I have been about 9 TIF files which include 502 pages among those files. I am trying to print these as a batch rather than page by page. Can Photoshop Elements 8 do that? I'm using Windows 7 as the O/S. Any help in figuring out how to make this happen will be greatly appreciated.
I'm not being successful in getting you a screenshot of these. I'll try to describe.... I tried to load the file hoping that you could see what I'm talking about. It's a file of obituaries from our genealogy society. Let medescribe.....When you open the file to look at the contents, it looks like a Word or PDF file in that is is typed obits on a page. When you hit "print" it only prints the first page. If you right click on it, you can scroll thru page by page and print in that manner. When I downloaded the file to PS8, only the 1st page downloaded. Because the other pages are "behind" that first one, I haven't been able to see them without using the right click open function.
Photoshop elements in both the editor and editor doesn't really support multiple page tif files (they only show the first page).
Just to be sure when you open the tif file, there are no layers, just the one layer in the layers panel?
I'm not sure what you mean by layers. I'm not familiar with that terminology. It could be though. The top "page" is the only one that you see until you hit the "next" button. The "top" page is the only one that imports into PS8. Could that be the layers you're referring to?
Thanks for the 2 programs. I would not open and use them without your referral since I'm not familiar with either one. Some of those programs are just problems. I'll give them a try and see what happens. Thanks!
Thanks Michel for the link. I can’t really understand why anyone would create such a tiff unless it’s to preserve lossless quality for archiving.
It looks like it's an old feature of the tiff format which was first used for scanning purposes according to Wikepedia. The samples I have found on the web are from old archives (Government, universities...) I guess the pdf format has superseded the tiff format for multipage documents. Being able to convert to pdf seems a big advantage of softwares like Faststone (I am sure there are also other excellent viewers). For quality of archiving, no advantage of tiff over pdf.
