The 8BIM / 37724 tag influences basically the appearance of a layer. The layerdata should be accessible by its own. So what you can get is the image data itself without layermasks, layer effects like overlay and so on.

Additional CinePaint reads and writes multilayer tiff's and Ghostscript writes multipage tiff's out of PS/PDF. Of course they, like GraficsMagic, dont support the Photoshop tag.

Hey Thanks Bob and Chris,

I am aware of the Photoshop layer data but I need to get access to that within the TIFF file through LibTiff.

I was wondering how to do that, since LibTIff doesn't recognize the Tag that specifies this data.

Is there any way, or has someone done this already?
