Unable open .tif files

Postby V@no » Wed May 24, 2017 9:15 pm

Hello.

Trying open .tif files from https://www.boem.gov/Gulf-of-Mexico-Dee ... athymetry/ shows
Error opening the file <BOEMbathyE_m.tif>


Any ideas?

Thank you.

Windows 10 x64

Looking at the file size of the TIFFs on the page you link to, a possible reason that they can't be opened might be that their pixel dimensions when opened require more ram than can be addressed by a 32-bit Windows application.

You might try again using the XnView MP 64-bit version...
