Resolving multiple-pages tiff converting error using iText

#iText #solution #tiff

The solution in our project is using iText to convert tiff to PDF. It’s running OK for single-page and multiple-pages tiff when testing. But the code doesn’t work for customer’s tiff files when UAT.

The error message: at com.itextpdf.text.pdf.RandomAccessFileOrArray.readFully(

After debug and see the source code , I found that ?the TIFFDirectory(s, page) will called to do some initialization everytime when calling?TiffImage.getTiffImage(RandomAccessFileOrArray, index), which seems would cause wrong index reading??for the second time for a same?RandomAccessFileOrArray or a same?InputStream object?.

So,my solution is creating a new RandomAccessFileOrArray ?object ?using byte array every time when calling?TiffImage.getTiffImage(RandomAccessFileOrArray, index).

The Type of the Tiff file which has error:


The Java code:

public static void tiff2Pdf(InputStream is, OutputStream os, String inputFileName) {
	Document document = new Document();
	try {
		PdfWriter writer = PdfWriter.getInstance(document, os);
		ByteArrayOutputStream byteArrayOutputStream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
		byte[] bytes = new byte[1024];
		int len = 0;
		while ((len = > 0) {
			byteArrayOutputStream.write(bytes, 0, len);
		byte[] byteArray = byteArrayOutputStream.toByteArray(); //get bytes array
		RandomAccessFileOrArray ra = new RandomAccessFileOrArray(byteArray);
		int pages = TiffImage.getNumberOfPages(ra); // get page count
		float pageWidth = document.getPageSize().getWidth();
		for (int i = 1; i <= pages; i++) {
			Image image = TiffImage.getTiffImage(new RandomAccessFileOrArray(byteArray), i); //new
			float imageWidth = image.getWidth();
			if (pageWidth < imageWidth) {
			image.scalePercent((pageWidth - 50) / imageWidth * 100);
	} catch (DocumentException e) {
		logger.error(e.getMessage(), e);
	} catch (IOException e) {
		logger.error(e.getMessage(), e);
	} finally {
		try {
		} catch (Exception e) {
