I am having serious trouble with a series of large(c.23mb) 32bit TIFF files
that originally came from a FinePixS2 Pro digital camera. They display
perfectly in the Windows Picture and Fax viewer, and also print superbly from
this programme, both in colour and B+W (using my Canon S800 set to monochrome-I
have not yet been able to greyscale the picture). But the Picture and Fax
Viewer tells me it is a Corel Paint 7.0 image, and that it was created on a
FinePixS2Pro digital camera. It is 3024x2016. But... if I use Corel Paint 7.0
to open it, it looks horrible, with a grainy texture, and distorted
colours(very prominent greens and reds.
But this is a vital series of photos, and I really need to use them. I can't
understand why the images work perfectly from Windows Picture and Fax Viewer,
and badly from everything else-and of course, I can't edit them from this
programme.Have I hit a specialised form of TIFF that needs special filters?
Also, why does Windows say they are Corel Paint 7.0 images, and not TIFF's? It
is not by any chance picking up on the fact that I have Corel Paint 7.0 on this
machine? Have Incidentally, I believe the photographer uses a Mac.
I'd be most grateful for any help!
