Dear all,

I am trying to extract the first image of a multiframes TIFF image. According to tiffcp documentation one should use:

$ tiffcp test.tiff,0 out.tiff

However it keeps on failing with:

test.tiff: Error, can't allocate space for image buffer.

The strangest thing is that it works with the next image:

$ tiffcp test.tiff,1 out.tiff
$ tiffinfo out.tiff

I am using libtiff 3.9.5 and 4.0.0~beta7 on a Linux/debian machine.

Thanks for suggestions,
