Creating a tif file using ASP

P: n/a
Is there any way to create a tif file from ASP? I would
like to essentially create a tif of a formatted textual
document. Any insight would be appreciated.

Are you sure you want a tif? Wouldn't a gif or jpeg do the job.

ASP image is a useful (server-side) tool

I'm open to gif or jpeg, but I thought a tif gave a
clearer image. Maybe it doesn't matter in terms of a
document. Is there any way to do this type of thing
without 3rd party software? Today our solution involves
creating a Word document in the background; however, we've
had problems with users being able to view it because they
are not all on the same version of word. We are trying to
find a more dependable solution without incurring the cost
of a third party tool. Any additional thoughts?

Thanks!

Have you considered PDF? If they are documents, that may be the way to
go.....Of course, you will need a component.

If you are adamant about not getting a third party component, you could
consider going to .NET, it has built in graphics libraries that are very
cool, and include tiff!

Yes, ASP or script doesn't support to create a TIF imgae without thirs
party components or library. AS a work around, you may consider to upgrade
to ASP.NET and you can create a TIF image with GDI+. For your reference:

Any recommendations for PDF Creator/Converter? We are
generating the document on the fly using ASP code and
reading information from a SQL Server database table. We
need want to provide a link to a file which contains a
readable version for the user, but it must happen in real
time. Can we stay in the <$500 range?

Thanks,
Lisa
