I have a simply question, what is the orientation of a tiff? Is (0,0) lower left or upper left? If it is not consistent, how do I determine the orientation?

Have a look into the TIVV V6 spec. There is a tag named "Orientation", and how

to interprete this is explained in detail there.

This tag defaults to 1, and that means the origin is the upper left corner, the scanlines (rows) from left to right and the columns from top to bottom
