From the TIFF 6 spec (at the end of the section titled "Image File Header"):
"The term byte offset is always used in this document to refer to a location with respect to the beginning of the TIFF file. The first byte of the file has an offset of 0."
On the tiff spec (v6.0) the Directory entry has a value that can be also an offset (if the actual value does not fit on 4 bytes). Is this offset number from the begining of the stream (or file) or from where the value is?
If we have a multipage TIFF, is the offset of the next IFD from begining of strream (or file) or from where the pointer is?
Thank you in advance for our help.
