Can someone please confirm if I need to have Ghostscript installed in order for ImageMagick to successfully convert PDF files to TIFF, or is the necessary Ghostscript functionality included in the ImageMagick install?

I think it depends on the platform.

For Windows, Ghostscript needs to be installed.

From memory it is best to install Ghostscript first.

Ghostscript is needed as well for Unix systems.
