I need to add an annotated text to an TIFF image. The program will get the input like Path of the TIFF file, Text to be written, and where to write.

I can not use any ActiveX control as the code has to run on Solaris. How can I do this using libtiff?

If by "annotated text" you mean that you want to render text onto the raster image, you can't do that directly using libtiff. You can use FreeType to do that. FreeType is easiest to use from an image processing package (e.g. ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick) which supports annotating with text from the command line.
