Motorola Q won't open .tiff files

I have documents forwarded to me via email in a .tiff format. The Q doesn't recognize them. I downloaded a PQV program which works on the files when they are accessible to it, but the Q tries to open them with its own file viewer and won't recognize them!

How do I open the attachments from PQV, or save them to my storage card from my Outlook file on the phone?

Try this

When you have the email downloaded on the Q, go to File Manager and navigate to \Application Data\Volatile. You will see your attachment there - click Menu\File\Copy To.

Then, navigate down to your Storage Card folder (or into a subfolder, if you like), and hit Done.

Converting scanned documents into Word documents

Scan the text pageyou want to convert into a Microsoft Word document.
Save the scanned image as a *.gif, *.jpeg file, if possible save it as a *.tiff file.
If the image file is not a TIFF file then OPEN that saved image file, go to File - Save As and name it as a TIFF file.
Go to Start- Programs - Microsoft Office Tools - Microsoft Office Document Imaging Go to File - Open and open your scanned document that has been saved in *.tiff format.
Go to Tools - Send Text to Word. You will get a prompt stating this process will taketime, Click OK.
This will take several minutes depending on your computer's speed and the size of the text document.When it has completed Microsoft word will open and the word document can now be edited and spell checked.
Spell check should be done on the document after conversion because not all the text may be converted correctly.

I first scanned all the docs into the picture gallery. My professor needs them all in pdf format. How? I've got an HP Pavilion laptop. My professor's waiting for me to call her tonight when...

PDF format means legal form which is handled in Adobe Acrobat. You said you scanned your docs into the picture gallery, and I am hoping that you left them in the default format that your scanner uses instead of changing them to a picture format (like JPEG, or TIFF) or this may be too complicated to assist via email.

If you do not have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat & Adobe Reader, do a search on the internet and download then install them. They are free. Once the programs are installed, open Adobe Acrobat and click on "file" at the top left side of the screen and try and open one of the documents you saved in the picture gallery in the acrobate program. If they are compatible, all you have to do is rename and save the document in Adobe. To save it, after you have opened it in Adobe - click on file and then "save a copy" or "save as" and choose whatever the documents name is and .pdf at the end (save to a pdf format) and then you are done.

If the file format of the documents are not compatible and will not open and easily save in PDF format using the Acrobat, then I would suggest asking your teacher for an extension.

Good luck!

Cannot view color Tiff images using windows picture and fax viewer. Windows XP

TIFF files come in various formats. Check if your file is only TIFF and NOT TIFFJPG.

How to convert scanning documents to MS-words

You are going to want to find any OCR software that works for your printer. OCR is 'Optical Character Recognition'. It will take the scan and convert it into a text document, which is either already compatible for MS Word, or easily converted itself.

I have got a DCP-110C printer, how do I scan a document onto the computer then alter the text within this document?

Try this procedure and let me know how it goes

  1. Scan the page you want to convert into a Microsoft Word document.
  2. Save the scanned image in *.gif, *.jpeg or whatever format.
  3. Open that image, go to "File->Save As" and name it "xyz.tiff" in the "TIFF" format as shown.
  4. Go to "Start->Programs->Microsoft Office Tools->Microsoft Office Document Imaging"
  5. Go to "File->Open" and open your scanned document that has been saved in *.TIFF format.
  6. Go to "Tools->Send Text to Word." You will get a prompt stating this process will take time, Click OK. This will take some time depending on your computer's speed (a minute or two at the most).
  7. When it's done it will open up Microsoft word on its own and the scanned document will now be in editable mode.

To scan a document for editing purposes, you will need OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. OCR software is not included with your model.
OCR software interprets the scanned document for editing purposes. The Epson driver alone only scans documents as image files and is not capable of this interpretation.
Some reputable OCR software programs on the market are:
Omni Page Pro
ABBYY FineReader Pro
Presto! OCR 4.0
Please understand that Epson has NOT tested our products with these programs. They do not know if these programs are TWAIN compliant and will import directly from our scanners. I recommend that you contact these companies for full compatibility information if you are interested.
