Printing tif faxes in Vista fax is rotated and stretched - skewed

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Printing / Faxing / Scanning' started by Learning to work with the Borg, Apr 24, 2007.

  1. I am running Vista Ultimate and Office 2007 Ultimate with Business Contact
    Manager. If I open a tif fax that comes in over my email with windows photo
    gallery or any other program that I have found in Windows to open a tif file
    the fax is displayed upright on a landscape oriented page. I can not for the
    life of me figure out how to get it to display in the appropriate
    orientation. If I rotate the page or change landscape vs portorate same
    thing. This used to be so easy... Please help.

    solution is.

  5. I also am experiencing the same issue but cannot find a solution. Th
    strange thing is that - for these problematic faxes, the TIFF fil
    itself really IS stretched, as shown in other editors such as MSPaint o
    Photoshop. So then a related question would be - why, then, does th
    fax appear correct (non stretched) when previewing it in the Window
    Picture & Fax viewer

    I'm running into this same issue. Do we know if the issue is from senders
    end, like if they're using an efax service that's distorting it, or if it's
    something on the receivers end? This issue only comes up on about 15% of the
    images I receive.

    This appears to be an issue with fax machines sending faxes in standar
    resolution of 200x100 dpi. The only way I have been able to corect th
    issue is to manually stretch/skew the immage and reduce the width b
    50%. If anyone has a better way I would relly like to hear about it
    Paint and other Image viewers are not takeing into account th
    resolution of the document. This is a real problem for my client wh
    then imports the tiff into an EMR database

    It would appear that the image viewers are not takeing into account th
    resolution of the fax. the standard resolution on most fax machines i
    200x100 dpi. the only solution I have is to strecth/skew the image an
    reduce the width by 50%. If there is a better solution I would love t
    hear about it. My client imports the tiff into a medical EMR databas
    and this problem is very inconvient for them. When they recieve faxe
    sent in fine resloution 200x200 everything is fine. Please hel
