It could be slower, depending on your compression options. Flate compression, for example, can use the larger strip for better compression ­ but it takes longer to do the compression.

I am trying to improve performance in my program. I can write out all my image data once using TIFFWriteEncodedStrip and because i only use this once i thought it should be faster than this:

                                    for(row = 0;row < height;height++){
                                          read one line raw data
                                          using TiffWriteScanline write one line of raw data}
but i tested it and writing all bytes only once is actually slower. I thought the function call overhead alone would make the above much slower but it doesn't seem to be. Therefore i conclude that TIFFWriteEncodedStrip function must be very slow. Is this a correct assumption?. Maybe something else is wrong in my code if writing all bytes once should be much faster. I need your opinions.........
