Hello
Does anyone know how to combine tif files using java (or any other tool). For example I have a CD where someone has scanned multiple page documents into a tif format. The users want the multiple page documents combined into 1 document.
Thanks

Hi Chuck,
You may use Java Advanced Imaging (JAI).
This API works well on most file formats, and handles correctly TIFF pages.
To do what you need, you may use the following snippet, assuming you want to save the output images as tiff:

I forgot to mention that if you're using the Java 2 SDK 1.4, you may also use the ImageIO APIs.
To get the number of images use ImageReader.getNumImages and to retrieve one single image ImageReader.read(int imageIndex).
Hope this provides usefull.
