Stephen,

I posted a couple of what I hope are valid Big TIFF files, created by a piece of software that is not LibTIFF, as my offering to the gods of interchange happiness. http://tiff2.com/ Regards,

The gods of interchange are reasonably pleased. The files decode fine with AsTiff (my own proprietary TIFF codec), and LibTiff 4.0 (the BigTIFF upgrade of LibTiff that is almost ready).

The only problem with these files, unrelated to BigTIFF, is their tile width of 500 and tile length of 1, both which is not a multiple of 16 as tile sizes should be. Seeing image width is 500, you could do strips instead and that would leave you with perfectly legit files without changing the way they're chopped.

Best regards,

Joris Van Damme
