I've received numerous multi-page TIFF files in the last few weeks. They're typically eFax documents from my realtor. And it's amazed me that The Gimp couldn't handle them properly. Today I decided to figure out why.

After a bit of searching, I found that The Gimp 2.0 has multi-page TIFF handling. I downloaded the source, built in on my laptop, and bingo! It handles the faxed documents just fine.

What's a "big" of searching?

If you're looking for a commandline tool to split the files, libtiff has the tiffsplit command, which does just that.

Great help. I think once a few other issues are resolved it is going to be a great bit of software.
