I'm wondering if I have stumbled onto a problem with the TIFFReadRGBAImage function?
Please see the tiff image at ftp://ftp.lss.com.au/misc/image06.tif
Using my program, which uses the TIFFReadRGBAImage interface under Windows, the red and blue colours in the image are reversed. As you know, Windows uses an ABGR format in 32 bit mode, which is what the TIFFReadRGBAImage returns most of the time. However, on this particular image it is returning an ARGB format image.
I have traced the problem to the putRGBcontig8bittile function in tif_getimage.c. If I modify the UNROLL8 macro line and swap the order of pp and pp, this image then displays perfectly.
Not knowing anything about tifflib, or the tiff format in general, I thought I should post to this list and ask if anyone has come across this before I make this a permanent change to my program.
