Hi. I'm new to libtiff and I'm no C guru either, so please excuse my ignorance here.

Using LibTiffDelphi?

I am trying to get pixel data from a 4bit TIFF. I can use TIFFReadRGBAImage, TIFFReadR, TIFFReadG, TIFFReadB, TIFFReadA but surely these will not provide the correct data for a 4bit image?

Oh but yes, it should. TIFFReadRGBAImage always returns 32bit RGBA data, regardless of source colorspace and bitdepth. (Which is its greatest drawback, and its greatest convinience.)
