Aspose.pdf SaveAsTiff Problem with more then 1000 Pages

Hii Aspose Team

In our Application we convert the pdf in Tiff and save it.

In our tests we monitored followed issue:

If the pdf has more then 1000 Pages, the pdfConverter.SaveAsTIFF(filepath, tiffSettings) method occurs following exception. up to 1000 pages is everything ok and works fine.

System.Runtime.InteropServices.ExternalException (0x80004005): A generic error occurred in GDI+. at System.Drawing.Image.SaveAdd(Image image, EncoderParameters encoderParams) at #=z9q8xEPHRKjXP2gWUkdFasqh9lD6h9juyDlRWpOQmo3j_fSpNKA==.#=zK6vdKsI=(Bitmap #=zGIg6ARU=) at Aspose.Pdf.Devices.TiffDevice.Process(Document document, Int32 fromPage, Int32 toPage, Stream output)

Have you any idea?

if you want, we can deliver a sample application

public string SaveAsTiff(string inputFile, string outputFolder)
    if (!File.Exists(inputFile))
        throw new FileNotFoundException($"Die Datei {inputFile} konnte nicht gefunden werden");

    var pdfConverter = new Aspose.Pdf.Facades.PdfConverter();
    // create Resolution object with 300 as an argument
    var resolution = new Resolution(240);
    // specify the resolution value for PdfConverter object - default is 150
    pdfConverter.Resolution = resolution;
    // bind the source PDF file
    // start the conversion process
    //create TiffSettings object, set Compression and ColorDepth
    var tiffSettings = new TiffSettings { Compression = CompressionType.None };

    var guid = Guid.NewGuid().ToString();
    var filepath = Path.Combine(outputFolder, $"{Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(guid)}.tiff");

    pdfConverter.SaveAsTIFF(filepath, tiffSettings);
    return filepath;


Could you please make sure to use the latest version of the API i.e. Aspose.PDF for .NET 21.3. In case issue still persists, please share a sample console application with sample PDF document with us. We will test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly. You can please add your files in .zip format and share with us. If file size exceeds 10MB, you can upload it to Google Drive or Dropbox and share the link with us.

Thank you for your answer.

In Nuget manager I have only version 21.2 (include prerelease)

if I can install the latest I will test it

Thank you and brest regards
