I am not that familiar with the TIFF specification, and hoped that the specification itself would allow serial read/write. But if it does not probably there is not much hope.
I am trying to read/write very simple TIFFs - no compression, single strip, 256 indexed colors.
Consider using other image formats, such as PNG or JPEG2000, which are fully streamable and have free implementations. TIFF is not designed for sequental access, as it was covered by Joris and Frank.
