Report Files Format

All the reports are stored in Tagged Image File Format (TIFF). Most labels have multiple pages and require the use of a multi-page capable TIFF viewer to be effectively displayed. While numerous TIFF viewers are available, not all are capable of reading multi-page TIFFs (some viewers display only the first page). Additionally, a viewer with zoom and rotational capabilities is recommended.

If you are running Windows, you may have received a multi-page TIFF viewer as part of the Windows installation. Depending on the version of Windows being used the TIFF viewer is named WANGIMG.EXE or KODAKIMG.EXE and resides in the Windows directory. If you cannot find it and are using Windows 98 or Windows 2000, you can download a viewer (KODAKPRV.EXE - 112 Kb) here. The viewer can be put anywhere on your machine and is used by clicking on the file (no ibstallation required.

If you have one of the above TIFF viewers, but it is not installed as a Netscape plugin, Netscape will return a message indicating that it cannot find the plug-in. If this happens, simply choose the "browse" option in the Netscape message box, and browse your Windows directory for the file "WANGIMG.EXE" or "KODAKIMG.EXE". Click on this file, and Netscape will install it as a plug-in.

If you are using any other operating system or browser, check your user manual or with a technical consultant regarding an appropriate TIFF viewer for your system.

NOTE: If you have difficulty attempting to view a label from within a browser, you should choose to save the label to your hard drive using a .tif extension. You may then view the label at a later time using a multi-page capable TIFF application.
