Hopefully there will not be too many downloads since the packages are quite large (4.3MB each) and the downloads will be very very slow but I have generated new sets of TIFF test images using GraphicsMagick. The unique feature of these files is that they support integer bit depths of 1-32 and 64 bits, as well as 32 and 64-bit floats (value range 0.0 to 1.0). The various storage schemes (strip, tile, contiguous, planar) and photometrics offered by TIFF are used. Each image set contains 254 TIFF files. The intention of the sample files is to help applications improve interoperability and become better at reading unusual bit depths. Some bit depths are just plain weird but others (e.g. 4) are quite useful.
Here is some tiffinfo output to provide an idea of how unique these files really are:
TIFF Directory at offset 0x79f0 (31216)
Image Width: 73 Image Length: 76
Tile Width: 16 Tile Length: 16
Resolution: 72, 72 (unitless)
Sample Format: unsigned integer
Compression Scheme: None
Photometric Interpretation: RGB color
Planar Configuration: separate image planes
Page Number: 0-1
ImageDescription: 13-bit tiled separated RGB image
Software: GraphicsMagick 1.4 unreleased Q32 http://www.GraphicsMagick.org/
These image sets are available.
Please let me know if big-endian versions are needed.
