rtiff: Read and Write TIFF Files
Reads and writes TIFF format images and
returns them as a pixmap object. Because the resulting object
can be very large for even modestly sized TIFF images, images
can be reduced as they are read for improved performance. This
package is a wrapper around libtiff (www.libtiff.org), on which
it depends (i.e. the libtiff shared library must be on your
PATH for the binary to work, and tiffio.h must be on your
system to build the package from source). By using libtiff's
highlevel TIFFReadRGBAImage function, this package inherently
supports a wide range of image formats and compression schemes.
This package also provides an implementation of the Ridler
Autothresholding algorithm for easy generation of binary masks.
