RE: GIMP TIFF won't display in or print from Win FrameMaker 5.5.6

Hi Hedley,
Try Graphic Workshop Pro. It can batch convert from several formats to
several other formats. I use it all the time. It's shareware but the
download is not crippled in any way. You can download it at the link below.
If you choose to purchase, it is a mere $40 Canadian, that's what, $1.75

Subject: GIMP TIFF won't display in or print from Win FrameMaker 5.5.6


I have been capturing screens with Snag It and saving to TIFF.  If I open
in GIMP, edit, and save to TIFF, FrameMaker can neither display nor print
the graphic when it is imported.  I have tried NO compression and all the
other options except JPEG.  One difference is that GIMP allows you to add a
comment to a TIFF, unlike most other programs.  I suspect it adds a null
comment even when you delete the contents of the Comment box in the save

I prefer TIFF for colour reproduction.  Saving as PNG causes FrameMaker to
create its own FrameImage bitmap for display.  I do not have the resources
conveniently to hand to determine whether the PNG facet or FrameImage facet
is used for printing.

Does anybody know of a filter/converter plug-in that saves in a TIFF
variant format that most other  graphics software understands?  Or any
other workaround to get to TIFF?
