tiff2ps reads TIFF images and writes PostScript or Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) on the standard output. By default, tiff2ps writes Encapsulated PostScript for the first image in the specified TIFF image file. By default, tiff2ps will generate PostScript that fills a printed area specified by the TIFF tags in the input file. If the file does not contain XResolution or YResolution tags, then the printed area is set according to the image dimensions. The -w and -h options (see below) can be used to set the dimensions of the printed area in inches; overriding any relevant TIFF tags. The PostScript generated for RGB, palette, and CMYK images uses the colorimage operator. The PostScript generated for greyscale and bilevel images uses the image operator. When the colorimage operator is used, PostScript code to emulate this operator on older PostScript printers is also generated. Note that this emulation code can be very slow. Color images with associated alpha data are composited over a white background.
