# Windows – How to split a multipage TIFF file on Windows

imagestiffwindows

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 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
