After scanning a series of negatives, I ended up with a large multipage TIFF file. Apparently Lightroom (I have ver. 3.6) only recognize the first image. Is there a way to handle multipage TIFF directly from Lightroom?

Edit: I have found the following question on SuperUser which is not exactly promising...

You could use ImageMagick to convert the tiff to multiple files then they will open fine in Lightroom

convert multipage.tif single%d.tif

Sorry @Rob, for some reason I had missed your reply. In the meanwhile, I had already decided for the "ImageMagick route". – Francesco Sep 5 '13 at 8:34
No problem - so is this the correct answer? – Rob Sep 5 '13 at 13:17
It is the best solution that I found until now, so it answers indirectly the question about LR support. – Francesco Sep 5 '13 at 13:38
