Libtiff is used successfully by lots of software so any formatting errors are likely to be in the buffer that you pass to libtiff.

While you are of course correct, I can't help feeling this sounds like Sam speaking... ;-)

No, it's got nothing to do with endianness. From this line:


it's clear that we're talking about bytes, not words or anything. Endianness is a multi-byte issue.

It is, instead, windows tradition B-G-R needing to be byteswapped to unix tradition R-G-B.
