The multipage tiffs contain pages in grayscale and colour which were created using the old style (problematic) jpeg compression option.
I have tried other tools, such as libtiff (modified with a patch to handle the old jpeg compression), and the latest version of imagemajick. Unfortunately they cannot correctly convert the files, whereas gimp can, but only one page of the multi-page tiff at a time (gimp crashes if I load a 5page document (as separate images) then convert each image to monochrome,flatten and save in one session)
the scripting function for loading tiffs file-tiff-loaddoes not expose the options to load individual pages, or to select loading as images or as layers, which the visual file load/import does.
does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can achieve this using a script.? manually is not a problem, but too time consuming for large (eg. 200page) tiffs.
