Can't open image file

I get this error message when trying to convert a tiff image to PDF:
"Can't open image file [path]"
The exception is thrown in pdf1.Save(...

I have no problem open it in MS Document Imaging and it works fine with other documents.
I´m on Windows XP SP3 and Aspose.Pdf 5
Here is the code:

private Aspose.Pdf.License pdfLicense = new Aspose.Pdf.License();

Pdf pdf1 = new Pdf();
Aspose.Pdf.Section sec1 = pdf1.Sections.Add();

sec1.PageInfo.Margin.Top = 0;
sec1.PageInfo.Margin.Bottom = 0;
sec1.PageInfo.Margin.Left = 0;
sec1.PageInfo.Margin.Right = 0;

Aspose.Pdf.Image image1 = new Aspose.Pdf.Image(sec1);


image1.ImageInfo.File = docProperties.Path + "\\" + docProperties.Filename;
image1.ImageInfo.ImageFileType = ImageFileType.Tiff;
image1.ImageInfo.TiffFrame = -1;

string newFilename = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(docProperties.Filename) + ".pdf";

pdf1.Save(outputPath + "\\" + newFilename);

The file is attached.

I just noticed the tiff file I was unable to open was compressed with jpeg compression. Was that the problem? I´ve tried the new version of Aspose.Pdf (5.3) and i solved my problem. The reason I ask, is that I can´t open the file with System.Drawing,Image.FromStream, probably because of the jpeg compression.

Hello Mathias,

I am glad to hear that your problem is fixed. In fact the TIFF had compression value 6 (old-style jpeg compression), which is not supported by Windows GDI. However we have added a support of this compression type in our product.

In the event of any further query, please feel free to contact.
