Batch TIFF Resizer v3.48 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of Batch TIFF Resizer v3.48.

Here are the changes in this update

  • Fixed bug which causes the Preview Page Number to be disabled when the prior selection is a single page PDF
  • Improved PDF Image Preview

Batch TIFF Resizer v3.46 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of Batch TIFF Resizer v3.46.

In this update, we included support to extract text from PDF files into Text Files. You can use the text in your documents. This however does not support scanned documents.

We also fixed a Page Range bug.

Batch TIFF Resizer v3.34 Released

This update fixes an intermittent bug where more than one pages are selected in a multipage PDF file and the Image Format is set to “Extract to Multiple Single Page PDF Files” and the resultant file contains either a blank page after or the entire selected pages.

Batch TIFF Resizer v3.29 Released

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Batch TIFF Resizer v3.29. This update adds the Deflate algorithm to the TIFF Compression options.

We made slight modification to the Image Format dropbox. Lately, we have clients who are confused about the “Extract” option. Basically, there is two core sets of Image Format, one which would be to merge all the files on the list as a single TIFF or PDF file.

The second option is the “Extract” option which has two variant. The first being the “Extract One File to One (PDF/TIFF)”. This method basically will treat each file in each row as a single file. It will apply the page rearranging, extraction and deletion where applicable. However if you set the page range to the all the pages in the document, it will save that single row as a single file. This will work with format which supports multipages such as the TIFF and PDF format.

The other variant to the “Extract” option is the one to extract all the pages to single page file. In this case, if a TIFF file has 5 pages, it will save each of the file pages as single pages. So you will get 5 files each with its own page. This will work with PDF and TIFF as well as the formats such as PNG and JPEG which does not support multiple pages.

CM TIFF 2 PDF is back in the App Store

Apple came through for us and granted us the expedite review process and CM TIFF 2 PDF v3.0.1 is back on the App Store. This fixes the licensing issue.

We apologized for the inconvenience caused. If you are affected by the issue, please download the latest version from the Mac App Store.

CM TIFF 2 PDF (Mac) Temporarily removed from the App Store

We were alerted to the fact that the current CM TIFF 2 PDF v3.0.0 on the Mac App Store was using an old license key for the PDF engine and did not work. We have removed the app from sale to minimize the issue and have uploaded a new version v3.0.1 with the fix.

A request for the App Store to perform an expedited review has been made and hope that the CM TIFF 2 PDF will be made available within the next few days.

We apologize for the oversight.

All Mac Apps are now 64 Bit

Over the last year, we have been making several tweaks to our Mac Apps and at the beginning of 2016, we successfully compiled and listed all our non-PDF based apps to 64 Bit. Last week, we submitted 64 Bit version of the last four applications, Batch TIFF & PDF Converter, CM TIFF 2 PDF, CM PDF & TIFF Page Extractor and CM PDF Merge NX to the Mac App Store and they have been approved and now listed on the App Store.

With that, all our applications on the three platform, Mac, Windows and iOS applications are now available in 64 Bit versions.

As all our Mac Applications are supported on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and above, we have discontinued the 32 Bit support with that release.

CM TIFF Viewer Launched on the Mac App Store

We are pleased to announce the release of CM TIFF Viewer on the Mac App Store.

CM TIFF Viewer is a TIFF File Graphical Viewer. It employs the same TIFF rendering engine as our ComboTIFF, CM TIFF 2 PDF, Batch TIFF & PDF Converter and CM PDF & TIFF Page Extractor applications.

TIFF Documents are container files which can supported a wide variety of compression algorithms and some are widely used while others may be a little more obscure.

Over time, we had request to test of the TIFF documents which our users have are compatible with our tools and as such CM TIFF Viewer is born.

This FREE application can be used to evaluate the TIFF viewing and rendering features of our other tools or can be used as a quick way to view a TIFF document file which you may have around. As the Mac App Store does not allow you to try the application before buying, we thought it would be apt to provide you a way to test the TIFF engine to see if they work with your files.

It supports both Single Page and Multipage TIFF documents which you can navigate through the pages. There is a Zoom slider which you can use to enlarge or reduce the dimensions of your TIFF file.

CM TIFF Viewer is a standalone application which is simple to use.

You can find CM TIFF Viewer at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cm-tiff-viewer/id1083844538?ls=1&mt=12

 

 

Batch TIFF & PDF Converter is Live

We have just got word from Apple that Batch TIFF & PDF Converter is now live on the Mac App Store.

This application is includes all the best features from all our PDF and TIFF tools we have listed on the Mac App Store which gives you an all-on-one platform to simplify all your TIFF and PDF needs.

Batch TIFF & PDF Converter

Although this application is called Batch TIFF & PDF Converter, like most of our applications, they do more than just converting between TIFF and PDF and vice versa. The inclusion of Page Ranges which we perfected on Batch TIFF Resizer is a powerful feature which will allow you to rearrange, extract, insert and remove pages from your TIFF or PDF documents. It gives you all the control needed to perform the task through a simple to understand interface. We are all familiar with Page Ranges in the context of Printing where you can select which page of the documents to print and we just brought that same simplicity in this tool.

An example of page range can be sum up in this simple line. Say that you have 10 pages in your document and you need to remove page 4 and swap the order of page 6 and 7. The Page Range will look like 1-3,5,7-6,8-10 . It’s as simple as that.

Page Extraction will allow you to extract one or more pages in the document for distribution instead of having to offer the entire document. The extracted pages can be saved as a TIFF, PDF, PNG or even a JPG file.

Inserting pages can be a life-saver especially when a page or more is missing from the document and you will not need to recreate the entire TIFF or PDF file. All you need to do is use Batch TIFF & PDF Converter to insert that page or file in for you. It supports inserting TIFF, PDF, PNG and JPG files.

Removing pages is the opposite of inserting and can be equally useful when certain pages are not ready for distribution.

Apart from those core features, Batch TIFF & PDF Converter supports adding of Text Captions to the pages. This can be done on the 9 computed points on the page and not only that you can determine which page you want the text captions to be on. A text caption in this case can be your copyright tag.

It also supports page resizing to reduce the page size and thus document size.

For PDF files, it supports working on both password protected and non password protected file. When it first loads the file to the list, it will evaluate if the file is password protected and if so, will prompt you to enter the password. This is only done at the beginning of the session. Obviously, this application will also offer you the ability to password protect your PDF file and determine which permissions such as Copying, Printing and Annotation support.

Batch TIFF & PDF Converter is a robust tool which is modelled around our Batch TIFF Resizer for Windows. This application is used by legal firms, architectural firms and any organization and individuals who would need to work with TIFF or PDF files on a regular basis.

Batch TIFF & PDF Converter retails for US$29.99 and is available exclusively on the Mac App Store at

Batch TIFF & PDF Converter for the Mac on the way

We have been busy behind the scene working on a brand new Mac App which builds on the various TIFF and PDF Apps that we currently have available in the Mac AppStore. This new app should be available next month and would model around Batch TIFF Resizer which will bring you support for working multi-page TIFF, PDF, PNG and JPEG Files format.

The application will provide you with an all-inclusive application to merge, extract, rearrange pages with TIFF and PDF files. It also comes with other nifty support to add text captions to the TIFF, PDF, PNG and JPEG files. It also features function to resize pages and other features which makes Batch TIFF Resizer where it is today.

Here are some of the basic screenshots
