On the TIFF point -- are you using 2.7.1 patched? It is likely that the crash is fixed there (it was intermittent and some of us never see it).

Otherwise you have not described what is 'substandard' nor given any examples, and others are not reporting such differences. (I do have XP and Vista 64 on the same machine, and I see no differences in the PNGs produced there.)

Are you sure that it is the bitmap file and not the viewer that is different? People so often forget that (almost all PDF problems reported here are in fact viewer problems) -- I was using Photoshop CS3 on both platforms.

And please don't multiple post:
