My application treats bilevel images ONLY, in which there is no need for the PlanarConfiguration tag.

However, the tifflib routines to write out Encoded strips seem to REQUIRE the PlanarConfiguration tag in the output TIFF, and, as far as I can tell, there is no way to get rid of it once the strip has been written.

I'm sure I'm not the first developer to run into this.

Short of making a SECOND pass and re-writing my output file without the unwanted (and unnecessary) tags, am I overlooking an obvious solution?

Thank you for your help.
