    Displaying tif images

    This is an internal web app, i can simply put one image on a popup page also if i can display the image.

    What is the best way to handle these images?

    Thanks

    The best way is to convert them to jpg or png images. To the best of my knowledge, only Safari supports the format. IE may support .tiff with the help of ActiveX and a viewer. I can't say, because it's all too easy to convert the format. Using the Image Magick suite of utilities, simply type "convert sample.tif sample.png" at the command line. Done.

    cheers,

    Even easier: download and install IrfanView, open the .TIF file, and save it as a .JPG or .PNG. Not trying to rain on your parade, Gary, but some people aren't comfortable with command-line software.

    True true. But with a cli, you can do a batch conversion, and not clobber the originals. That may be possible with a gui, but wasn't the last time I used IrfanView.

    I guess I'd be uncomfortable at a cli if it were MSDOS. That shell language is a right POS compared to BASH and all the *nix tools.

    IrfanView does have a batch conversion option, as well as batch resize and various other features like that.

    Good. That's basic. It's been a long time since I used the app.
