Hello,

I'm working with TIFF format and I have a problem: my scanner uses 12 bits to digitalize the image. I'm using the Adobe to write the image and I realized that the writed image has 16 bits (value from 0 to 65535). My doubt is: how my value (that must is between 0 and 4095) is converted to range 0 65535? I know that Adobe write the least significant byte first and, after, the most significant byte, but I don't know which part of the byte I have to discard. Can anyone help me?

Thanks.
