TIFF decompressor

By mberry ·
I have a Mac user that uses my computer cart with Win XP. Using powerpoint, his TIFF images do not appear. A message stating that having the latest Quicktime, or having a TIFF decompressor would solve the problem. The latest Quicktime is on the unit, but I have no idea where to find a TIFF decompressor that will work with powerpoint to decompress these images.

here is a list of steps to un-compress and then open the embedded Macintosh PICT images:

1 open the word or powerpoint file on your pc
2 "save as HTML" or web page, image files will be saved to a separate folder
3 find one of the *.pcz files
4 change the *.pcz extension to *.gz
5 open the file with a zip program like 7-zip
6 save the uncompressed file to your hard drive (there will be no extension)
7 add the *.pic extension to the file
8 open the file with quicktime
