Hey guys,

As part of a college project I'm trying to write a script to convert
TIFF images downloaded from the US patent office site, www.uspto.gov.

The tiff images are encoded using CCITT Group 4 compression and appear
to throw an error when i try to save them using the Image library:

>>> im.save(outfile, "PDF)


It looks like this odd compression format is not supported, or am i
wrong?

I know its a long shot but would anyone have a different solution?

Sophie.
