Hi

I have two questions...

# 1. Is it possible to just store the Tiff Directory with all tags except-the-image-pixel-data, so that I can later easily recreate a Tiff with same characteristics as the original file?

# 2. Assuming that I have the above directory of tags, and a buffer with all the image data... how can i recreate the tiff?

I saw that we have a function ' TIFFRGBAImage ' to read the image data...

But we dont have a corrsponding "write" function. Also, the above function can cause loss of information/quality if bits per sample is more than 8.

What will be the best way to solve my problem?

Thanks,
Sachin Garg
