Library for reading and writing TIFF files

'libtiff' provides support for the Tag Image File Format (TIFF), a widely used format for storing image data. This package includes a library (libtiff) for reading and writing TIFF, a small collection of tools for doing simple manipulations of TIFF images and documentation on the library and tools. A small assortment of TIFF-related software that has been contributed by others is also included. The library, along with associated tool programs, should handle most of your needs for reading and writing TIFF images on 32- and 64-bit machines.
