    I work with text documents in tiff file format all day long. When I
    click on a tiff file, it opens in Windows Photo Gallery. when I try to
    print it, it either will not print at all or the send fax program comes
    up. and there does not seem to be any other program that will open tiff
    files on the computer besides the photo gallery. can you not print tiff
    files with Vista? i have spent almost a week trying to figure this out.
    printing a simple document should not be a difficult thing, but for the
    life of me i can't figure it out. but if you can print tiff files, is
    there also a way to select what you want to print, like maybe the 1st
    page only of a 10 page doc? I have a HP officejet pro 8500 printer.

  2. I have just opened a TIFF picture in Vista Windows Photo Gallery and printed
    it out on my printer. When you open the print window from the Gallery, you
    should have drop down at top left, under 'How do you want to print your
    pictures?', to set the output printer. If that is set to Fax, it will bring
    up the fax program. If so, change it to your printer and it should print.
