Perhaps the fact that tiffcp.c was a twenty page program should have been a clue that what you wanted was not quite that simple after all.
If all you want to do is draw a line on an image, the TIFF library is probably not the way to go. What you want is some sort of paint program along the lines of CorelDraw or xpaint -- which one you need depends upon many things and i don't know enough about what is out there to suggest anything.
The TIFF library was intended as support for programs of that type.
