If you are using the libtiff library, you will need to open the four input files, create an output file with PHOTOMETRIC_SEPARATED, SAMPLESPERPIXEL=8, and PLANARCONFIG either SEPARATED or CONTIG. If you choose CONTIG you will have to interleave the input pixelsl. For SEPARATED you will call TIFFWriteScanline 4 times for each scanline, incrementing the value of the color arg.

If you need a commercial application, our company has several products which will meet your requirements. Piktor and tiffcombine

hi,

in the tiff library tools,we have a tool to create thumbnails,but this tool
creates thumbnails as files,cant we store the thumnails of each image in the
file in a temporary storage.

From: "Mark Trueman" <mark.trueman.mt@agfa.co.uk> Subject: writing raw data

Hi

Ive used the algorithm and code in the Fax3Encode2DRow method in libtiffs tif_fax3.c file in my own method for encoding a tiff file. The difference is that i am using the algorithm to encode an array of white black run length values as opposed to the actual pixels in the scanline (not using the PIXEL or "finddiff" macros). My problem is that i cant get the encoded data to be written to the tiff file. Im not sure about how the putspan and putcode methods work and how to get the result of these calls into the tiff file. I can see that putspan and putcode end up calling the _PutBits macro but this doesnt seem to write the bits to the actual tiff file. I can send code if someone is willing to help me

Hi,

This is probably a stupid question but I have been hunting around for quite a while and can't solve it. Had a look at the header files and

manual pages but no luck...

How do I enable basic 1:2 compression for a TIFF file - in addition

to the Image codec compression - such as Packbits.

I have two identical image files - one compressed using a graphics

program and one compressed using libtiff. When comparing using

tiffcmp - they it finds no differences.

However the libtiff file is twice the size of the graphics editor.

When I get information about the file I am told that although both

files are compressed using PackBits another field says that the

libtiff file is compressed 1:1 and the other file is compressed 1:2.

Is this an extension to TIFF that libtiff can't write? - I can

read/decode the compressed files fine...

Cheers,

nick.

You need to make the strip size larger, this will give you better runs

ie use something like

     TIFFSetField(tiff, TIFFTAG_ROWSPERSTRIP, (int)height); /* To achieve

better
compression */

Thanks for the tip but I am doing this already...

Subject: Re: {SPAM?} Re: 1:2 Compression?

Looks like I was working too late last night!

The compression ratio was just a measure of how effective Packbits was being.

Not sure what I changed (or when) but it is compressing more efficiently now.

Sorry for the stupid question.
