This is the specifications on the image as my program sees it:

Input image specifications:

512x512  photo = 1       8bpp    1spp    order = 0

res_unit = 2    xres = 72.000000        yres = 72.000000

compression: 1

rows per strip: 64      strips: 8       bytes per strip: 32768

And as the tiffinfo utility sees it:

TIFF Directory at offset 0x40008 (262152)
    Subfile Type: (0 = 0x0)
    Image Width: 512 Image Length: 512
    Resolution: 72, 72 pixels/inch
    Bits/Sample: 8
    Compression Scheme: None
    Photometric Interpretation: min-is-black
    Orientation: row 0 top, col 0 lhs
    Samples/Pixel: 1
    Rows/Strip: 64
    Planar Configuration: single image plane

So it looks like I am working with the data under the optimal conditions you specify.

Well, the image I'm reading is not compressed. So I thought the data would just be the integer color value of each pixel. If that is incorrect, how would I get that data? I want to be able to work with the color values for the pixels so that I can do my own compression.

If the image is not compressed, then you should be ok. What is the bits-per-sample of your data? If it is 8 and you are using the RGB photometric with three samples per pixel, then each byte would be one sample representing R, G, or B. If bits-per-sample is 1, 2, or 4 then there is much more work to do since multiple samples will be packed in a byte.
