Dear Sir,

I am trying to use the latest libtiff library. But I have found that APIs in reading TIFF files are requiring only a unit32 buffer (tifBuffer) in the following call:

      TIFFReadRGBAImageOriented(tifFile,
                                                           width, height,
                                                           tifBuffer,

ORIENTATION_TOPLEFT, 0)

If I knew that the TIFF file to be loaded is a Black/White 1 sample/bit data file, is there

any way I can pass a byte (unsigned char) buffer to the API so that the memory usage

will be more efficient?

Thanks for the help.

Regards,
Howard Xu
