Dear all,

I am trying to open a tiff file having its pixels as 16bit values. However, when I use the "TIFFReadRGBAImage" function to get the image, it converts the values automatically to 8bit. What can I do get the pixels in their original 16bit values?

You might have to use a different API, such as TIFFReadScanline. Or TIFFReadEncodedStrip / TIFFReadTile. I believe all three will return the 16 bit values.
