However, I'm keen to know how LibTIFF compares with OpenTIFF (which I also learned of today). All I know about the latter is that it is C++ based. Would anyone with some experience in using OpenTIFF would like to share their thoughts/impressions on both libraries and in particular, how they compare against each other. I'd be really grateful.
While libtiff is implemented in crusty old C, it is much more mature (i.e. more proven and less buggy) than OpenTIFF.
