Yeah, but if I do that, my application will be considered as a TIFF reader
and it's not. It could possibly handle 1-bit images, but not anything else.

One thing I have thought about was that I could do it that way, and if the
program was given a non 1-bit image, to pass the image silently to another
program declared as a TIFF handler. But this is really dirty.

Thanks for the informations. It will help me a lot.
