i can't find any information about the default TAG values libtiff sets in the first IFD when creating a new TIFF image file.

Oliver,

The answer is simple: there are no default tags. You should set all tags yourself, including image size, bit depth etc. after the TIFF creation. Refer to TIFF spec to find which tags are essential for particular TIFF profile.

Best regards,

Andrey
