Why not create a temporary file?

I guess the downside is increased memory usage.

TIFF is a random-access format which requires seeking. A carefully prepared TIFF could minimize or even eliminate backward seeking but you likely have no control over the TIFF files used.

You will always need to buffer the TIFF somewhere in order to assure a sucessful read given normal TIFF files.
