I'm not sure of the best way to directly handle an image in memory, but perhaps letting the list know what platform you're working on may be of benefit to finding a solution.

Oh boy, I shall follow this discussion with interest.

There is absolutely no problems in using libtiff to read images stored in memory.

Just use the TIFFClientOpen() function to open the image.

     tif = TIFFClientOpen("dummy", "r", (thandle_t) &fmti,
                          FM_tiffReadProc, FM_tiffWriteProc,
                          FM_tiffSeekProc, FM_tiffCloseProc,
                          FM_tiffSizeProc, FM_tiffMapProc,

Where for example the fmti structure is:

typedef struct {
         const char *gfx_name;
         char *data;
         size_t data_size;
         size_t io_pos;
     } Fm_DiMemIo;

and for example FM_tiffReadProc() is like this:

static tsize_t FM_tiffReadProc(thandle_t th, tdata_t buf, tsize_t size)
     Fm_DiMemIo *fmti = (Fm_DiMemIo *)th;

     if (fmti->io_pos + size > fmti->data_size)
         size = fmti->data_size - fmti->io_pos;

     (void)memcpy(buf, fmti->data + fmti->io_pos, size);
     fmti->io_pos += size;
