In addition to the image options set up on the Images page of the Options|Configuration dialog (f8) – see Image import/export options – there are some TIFF format-specific options.
|•||Choose TIFF images output format from the Options|Configuration dialog (f8) then click the Options... button on the 'General' page, or |
choose TIFF images format from the File|Export dialog (ctrl E and click Image options... to open the Images page of the Configuration dialog. Then click TIFF options... button to display the TIFF options page.

'Images' page of the Configuration dialog.
|1.||Select the orientation:|
either as Portrait or Landscape
or rotated through 0, 90, 180, 270 degrees counter-clockwise.
|3.||Choose fax options as required:|
Bit reversed the data bits are sent least significant bit first.
EOLs 'End Of Line' markers are added at the start of each line.
Byte-aligned any partial bytes at the end of a line are filled with zeros.
|4.||Choose Single strip if you wish to output the image as a contiguous chunk of data.|
|5.||Click Apply to accept the changes and close the TIFF options page.|
The image can be rotated to match the orientation of the page. It can be useful to load TIFFs directly on a Xerox DocuPrint and then call them up in PostScript. For example, for a portrait page use the 270 degree option. For faxing you should choose Portrait to rotate all pages to Portrait orientation regardless of their original orientation.
The original TIFF specification recommended that the data be divided into strips but you may configure EscapeE to output the image as a single contiguous chunk of data instead. This is useful for simplistic programs or for direct access via PostScript on a printer such as a Xerox DocuPrint™.
The set-up generally recommended (default) for CCITT group 3 fax compression is to tick the EOLs, Byte-aligned and Single-strip check-boxes.
