Tiff plot Resolution issues

Aldo
I am trying to create a high resolution tiff. It is not working.

I am on Windows XP 32-bit
R 3.0.0

Code input:
tiff(file="test.tiff",width=6.83,height=6.83,units="in",  res=1200)

Return Message:
Error in tiff(file = "test.tiff", width = 6.83, height = 6.83, units =
"in",  :
  unable to start tiff() device
In addition: Warning messages:
1: In tiff(file = "test.tiff", width = 6.83, height = 6.83, units = "in",  :
  unable to allocate bitmap
2: In tiff(file = "test.tiff", width = 6.83, height = 6.83, units = "in",  :
  opening device failed

Also
capabilities("tiff") returns TRUE
and
It must be a tiff, that is what the journal requires.
Thank You

Why do you need TIFF?  I've never seen a science journal that claims they want TIFF figure submissions who are really serious about that.  This is a very wasteful format.  Most journals want PDF.

There are likely many, but a quick Google is enough to suggest some of
them.  Here are the a couple of examples from PLOS and Nature Neuroscience.

Re: Tiff plot Resolution issues

Ranjan Maitra-2
Actually, quite a few journals do ask for .tiff (or, often, also .eps)
only (as part of their webpage instructions) but my experience has been
that many take .pdf without a lot of fuss.  

The OP could try and see if pdf will fly. If not, then (s)he can go
for TIFF images. If this is at the journal production stage, the
journal should help. (Of course, if on Linux and friends, (s)he could
also use ImageMagick to convert pdf/eps files to tiff. Something
similar for the proprietary OS's should also be possible.)

Best wishes,
Ranjan
