Sorry for the late reply. What I am getting with most software packages is an entirely black image. Is there a way of veiwing the data form teh 16-bit unsigned TIFF without libtiff automatically converting to 8-bit i.e. view 16-bit data? I can manually convert all values using a square root (changing into the desired 8-bit 0-255 whilst keeping proportions).

   This may be a slow memory inefficient method but at
this stage I would like this functionality.

Kind Regards,

Thankyou for the replies.

Yes, and this built in support does not apply the desired square root so probably all that you would get is a blown-out or all-black image. :-)

I totally missed the part about the square root! Ignore everything I said (except for the link). :)
