Here is a side-by-side comparison of how ImageMagick (using libtiff 3.8.2) displays the image, and how ImageJ correctly displays it:


ImageMagick is displaying the image correctly.

Planar Configuration: single image plane

  ImageDescription: ImageJ=1.37v

Apparently ImageJ uses this bit of hint that it has stored in the image description tag to "know" how to scale the image data. This is a very proprietary non-TIFF way to do things.

Try using 'normalize' in ImageMagick and you will see pretty much the same image. The minimum and maximum sample values are indeed 457 and 16383.
