About one month ago I was involved in project where I was need to split/convert multipage TIFFs into PNGs. Actually, there is a weird situation: at first glance EMC Documentum supports storing content in multiple pages, on the other hand there are no client application which supports this capability, so in case of multipage images customers/developers prefer to use either TIFF or PDF format, for example, below is a format distribution from one of our repositories:
|Format||No of documents|
So, TIFF format is very popular, however even in 2015 support of TIFF format in Java is very limited – there is nothing to add to Harald Kuhr’s presentation:
Fortunately, I had found a cool java library, which has passable support of TIFF format.
