Q10378 - HOWTO: Split a Multipage TIFF Into Multiple Single Page TIFF Files, Preserving All Tiff Tags

Our PdfDocument object has the built in ability to split a multipage PDF into multiple single-page PDF files. This feature isn't built in to our TiffDocument object while keeping the Tiff Tags. However, with a bit of extra work, this can be accomplished quite handily:

/// <summary>

/// Splits the tiff with the name passed in to multiple files


/// if in file is c:\someDir\foo.tif and has 3 pages, the result will be

/// c:\someDir\foo_0000.tif

/// c:\someDir\foo_0001.tif

/// c:\someDir\foo_0002.tif

/// </summary>

/// <param name="inFile"></param>

private static void SplitTif(string inFile)


// This reads the original TIFF and preserves tags

TiffDocument sourceDoc = new TiffDocument(inFile);


// since we're splitting, we will iterate through each page

for (int i = 0; i < sourceDoc.Pages.Count; i++)


// This stuff is done out longhand so you can see how we're building the filename

string filePath = Path.GetDirectoryName(inFile);

string fileName = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(inFile);

string fileExt = Path.GetExtension(inFile);

string counter = i.ToString("D4");

string pageFileName = filePath + "\\" + fileName + "_" + counter + fileExt;


// This is where the actual work is

// currentPageDoc is going to be loaded with one page (image and all tags)

// then saved out to the new file

TiffDocument currentPageDoc = new TiffDocument();
