I am trying to write Tiff files of size>2GB using libtiff 3.8.2. While writing the files no error is generated, however I cannot open the images using Photoshop CS2 which normally supports Tiff files up to 4GB.

I was first reading the archives and the FAQs, but writing non corrupted 3GB Tiff files with libtiff 3.8.2 seems to be possible.

Please let me know if you have some clue to identify the source of the problem and eventually to solve it.

I am recommending to use libtiff 3.9.0beta instead of 3.8.2. There was important bug fixed related to large images. It is certainly possible to write images larger 2GiB, am regularily doing that.
