Wif2Tiff reads WIF (Weaving Information File) format drafts with any number of shafts and translates them into drawdown images that it can save as TIFF graphics files. In structure drawdown images, black pixels indicate raised warp ends and white pixels indicate lowered warp ends. The drawdowns show the picks ordered from bottom to top as they would appear when woven.
Wif2Tiff version 2.0 can display both structure drawdown images and color drawdown images.
Macintosh OS X versions 10.2.8 through 10.6 users should download Wif2Tiff.sitx.hqx, which requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) that is version 1.4 or higher. Wif2Tiff cannot run on earlier Mac OS systems.
The program should download as a Stuffit archive file with a .sitx extension. You can use Stuffit Expander to unarchive the program. Stuffit Expander is freeware available at: http://www.stuffit.com/mac/expander/
If the program downloads to your Macintosh as a BinHex file with a .hqx extension, you can use Stuffit Expander to obtain the Stuffit archive file and then use Stuffit Expander to unarchive the program.
Macintosh OS X Lion (10.7 and higher) users should download Wif2Tiff_2.1.1.app.zip. If it does not unzip automatically, open it with the Archive Utility.
Microsoft Windows users should download and unzip Wif2Tiff.jar.zip. If double clicking the Wif2Tiff.jar file does not run the Wif2Tiff program, you probably need to download and install a version 1.4 or higher Windows JRE (Java Runtime Environment). In particular, users of Windows XP without Service Pack 1 need to install a JRE because Windows XP does not come with Java installed.
