7 When you say "can not open" is there some kind of error message
8 associated with it?
10 I've not had any issues with TIFF files (though admittedly I rarely need
11 to open any), but I would guess if it's only "some" files then it may be
12 that the program that generated them uses a non-standard/incompatible
13 format. It's hard to say without an actual error message. I've found
14 ImageMagick's identify(1) command to be very helpful with determining if
15 a file is indeed the format the creator claims it to be.
