Hello,

Is there any limitation to the max. size for a multi-page TIFF?

I developed a library to read/write multi-page tiff and I see strange issues when I generate a multi-page (with only four pages) tiff with size greater than 2Gb. When I try to open this multi-page with tool TIFFTagViewer, it returns an error message ('Unespected error. Page list is broken') opening the last page of the TIFF. IrFanView tool does not recognise also the last page.

Is this behaviour nominal? These issues disappears when I generate the same image replacing one page and getting a multi-page tiff with size lower than 2Gb.

I have also noted that libtiff (version lower than 3.8.2) returns some errors trying to read this multi-page but these errors disappear for libtiff version 3.9.4

Best Regards,

Jorge
