    Viewing TIFFs in Windows 7

    In XP, the best way to view a TIFF was via Microsoft Document Image Writer. It showed the pages on the left side and the current page on the right side, very much like in a PDF.

    That is not available in Windows 7. I was hoping that the Microsoft XPS Document Writer would replace the Imager Writer, but it does not.

    Can anyone tell me what is comparable to the Image Writer from XP in Windows 7?

    In my office, faxes come via eMail and we cannot easily view them.

    TIFF files are set to open by default in Windows Photo Viewer: this should give you a simple clean interface, but I agree, there is not much that one can do with it.

    Microsoft Office Picture Manager will give extra functionality, including thumbnails and a filmstrip preview option - if you have that package available to you.

    Alternatively, you may like to try TIFFViewer {which I have not personally tried}.

    The Picture Manager is not any better than the default viewer for Windows 7, but what I found out yesterday is that Adobe will open a TIF(F).

    You can change the file association for a TIF to Adobe by clicking on Default Programs | Associate a File Type ... | click the chevron on the right side of the screen and Adobe is available.

    So, my problem is solved and hopefully anyone else who has had this problem will read my post so their problem may be solved as well.
