Hi Srikrishnan,


When you generated the pdf, did fop give you any infos, warnings or errors regarding your tiff files? It’s quite possible (I had it with PNG files) that fop can’t process the file, prints a warning to log and continues to build the pdf. Even if other applications open your tiff files, fop may not like them.

Betreff: RE: How to load tiff images successfully in PDF




Sorry I forgot to mention one more thing:


My tiff images are not corrupted those are embedded correctly in the pdf when I use them through InDesign or Quark or LaTeX

May be it is a stupid question for you.


As I said clearly in my mail, I am new to FOP. I don’t found any proper user friendly Documentation for FOP. So I am in a confusion whether I missed something or anything not supported by FOP. If you people like experts in all these things need any further details if you ask me, certainly it is my duty to furnish those details.


My system and software details:


OS: Windows XP professional

FOP: version 0.95

Saxon: version 8


I have tried to open the pdf in two version of Acrobat


In version 9, it popup the error message as mentioned in my earlier mail (with empty space for the image places).

In version 6, it popup the error message as “Colour space” (with empty space for the image places)

In GSVIEW, without showing any error message it opens the pdf  (with empty space for the image places)


If you are not interested to answer such a stupid questions, don’t reply. Such kind of replies will discourage new users

Subject: How to load tiff images successfully in PDF


Hi all,


I am new to fop. I have successfully converted fo to pdf when gif images are loaded in the file. When came to tif images, pdf creates successfully, but when I scroll to the image page in Adobe Acrobat, the following error message popup:


“An error exists on this page. Acrobat may not display the page correctly. Please contact the person who created the PDF document to correct the problem”


My fo coding is as follows:


<fo:external-graphic src="url(file:/c:/sample/lhp01301.tif)" width="auto" height="auto" content-width="auto" content-height="auto"/>


But in the same above coding when I use gif image it works correctly. Any help would be very much useful.


Thanks in Advance,
