I have to write a program, that can crop tiff images. They're written by a scanner & compressed using CCITT Group 4. When I try to TIFFOpen such picture, libtiff says: "Tags are not sorted in ascending order" & then libtiff ignores every tag, including StripOffsets, and exits. Is there any program, that can fix those images???. (Commercial software reads it without problems). Or, is this a bug in libtiff??? I'm using LibTiff v.3.4 beta under DOS. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

I'm very sorry because of my bad english :-((((
