Multipage TIF to PDF

Recently I’ve continued the porting of iText adding the support for a new image type: multipage tif.

The only problem with this update is that actually it’s really slow and probably with very complex image files it can hang the player for too long. Probably I should modify the ImageElement.getInstance method and make it asynchronous in order to prevent flash player to freeze…

Anyway, the current trunk version of purePDF can handle TIF image and here a simple code example:

Here you can see the result PDF file.
And here the input TIF image.
