2000.03.13 14:11 "TIFF image file size", by Bruce Cameron
A colleague has the following error when animage processing program [OrthoBase] finishes and writes a TIFF image file -- Error writing data for field "BitsPerSample" Now this is a very large file [over 3 Gbytes], and OrthoBase says it is because "The TIFF header limits size to 32 bits (2Gig) (pixels or bytes - I'd have to check) even if file system supports larger files." I am not aware of a size limit, and even if it were the actual error makes no sense - the BitsPerSample tag is a UINT16 but actual values in that field should in no way get that big. Comments on file size limits and the meaning of that error are solicited.
