Recently I was coding some functionality that was dealing with multipage tiff images. Since I hadn’t any multipage pictures on my computer, I thought it shouldn’t be too difficult to find some sample files to test with.
So I started my everday search in google: Multipage tiff example, multipage tiff file sample, multipage tif download etc. Nothing. Mostly results about programs that can handle multipage tiffs. Yay! Also google image search left me out in the rain :(. Screenshots of programs that can handle multipage tiffs. Yay, again!
After 30 minutes of searching, I decided to create my own multipage image. Started up GIMP and tried to find an easy way. No luck. WTF! Then irfanview came to my mind – very handy when it comes to image viewing and manipulation. So I gave it try and after 2 minutes I had my multipage tif :D!
If you would like to create your own multipage tiff, simply install irfanview, go to “Options/Multipage images/Create Multipage tif…” and select the images you want to be included in the tif.
Press “Create TIF image” and have fun!
