Dear Community, I am working with histology TIFFs. Sometimes they are as big as 3 GBs. They are multipage tiffs (12 pages). My platform is. I have a set of Multi Page TIF image files, which I am trying to split into individual images. I have tried using convert, which does the trick, but. I have a collection of 10, or so PDF files that need to be converted to Multi- Page Tiff’s. I would like to group the files and do this in chunks.

I don’t have to necessarily use ImageMagick, any other free tool will be fine. Handling page files isn’t easy, especially if the pages are nothing but bitmaps. I find tarikki’s answer one of the best, because it really doesn’t hang the server nor does it eat RAM and disk space, and it’s fast. I don’t think it’s a memory issue, the PDF’s I’m using have only 4 pages.


Currently I’m using Imagemagick. My husband has used this software all the time for tuff many years for other imaging tasks, and he tells me he has never had this much difficulty either installing it or running functions.
