Interesting! Where did you find the algorithm for compression type 6
(old-style JPEG-in-TIFF)?

C code for compression type 7 (new-style JPEG-in-TIFF) has been
available for a long time as part of libtiff. Just download it from
http://www.remotesensing.com/libtiff/ . The code is in tif_jpeg.c .

A specification of compression type 7 can be found at
http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/TIFFTechNote2.html

This document also explains why it is a terribly bad idea to try to
implement compression type 6. Libtiff contains read-only code for this
deprecated compression type.
