Windows – How to split a multipage TIFF file on Windows


I thought Adobe Photoshop could do everything, but apparently it cannot read multipage TIFF files.

I have a TIFF file with four pages, and I need to edit one of the pages. Windows Picture Viewer can print all four pages, but cannot split them. Anyone know how I can split the original TIFF into four separate images suitable for editing?

The Google search for "free tiff splitter windows" returns lots of suspicious looking downloads.

The King of image transformation software is Image Magick. You can use this to do most image translations / conversions, and it's a respected (and therefore as safe) as these things can be.

It's a command line tool, but more powerful for that. At a command prompt, simply type ...

convert multipage.tif single%d.tif

to create multiple tif files.

On Windows, you must add magick to beginning of the command:

magick convert multipage.tif single%d.tif
