I have just started to learn VC++5.0 and MFC and I am trying to create a program that opens a TIFF image on which I can draw boxes...
I want to use the LIBTIFF library but I feel overwhelmed with all the info and am not even sure how to use the LIBTIFF with VC++.
I'm in the same boat, but with VC++6.0. Someone suggested that I check out ImageMagick, which has workspace files for compiling with VC++. I did have to make a minor modification to ttraster.c to turn off the optimization for maximum speed, but after that it compiled with no problems. This builds a .dll from the tiff library as well as other image formats, and implements some graphics tools. They might be of use to you, but at the very least you can use it to compile the tiff library....
