In addition to the image options set up on the Images page of the Configuration dialog – see Image import/export options – there are some TIFF format-specific options.

Display the General page of the Configuration dialog (from the 'Options' menu or press f8).
Choose output format TIFF images then click the Options... button.
Display the Export dialog ('File' menu or ctrl E).
Choose format TIFF images and click the Options... button to display the Images page of the Configuration dialog.
Then click TIFF options... button.
Click Apply to resume display of the 'General' page or
'Images' page of the Configuration dialog.
Click to expand/collapse hidden textTo set options for TIFF images
1.Select the orientation:
either as Portrait or Landscape
or rotated through 0, 90, 180, 270 degrees counter-clockwise.
2.Select a Compression format: see Image compression.
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™.

EscapeE can cope with reading CCITT3 Fax TIFFs even when the byte-aligned EOLs mode is wrongly specified but when exporting with CCITT group 3 fax compression the default setup is recommended: tick the EOLs, Byte-aligned and Single-strip check-boxes.
