15/6/94 Dear MathGroupers, Do you have a Mathematica function that can read a grayscale image stored in the TIFF file format. I'd like to be able to work on the 2-D matrix (i.e., a List of Lists) representing an image's bitmap. I don't (at the moment, anyway) need to read colour images, just grayscale (4-bit or 8-bit) or bilevel (1-bit), so a function that implements TIFF Class G baseline reading would work OK. Are functions available to read any other image file formats? (e.g., GIF, JPEG, PBM etc.) Please drop me a quick e-mail message if you can help, Thanks Dr Simon Chandler Hewlett-Packard Ltd (CPB) Filton Road Stoke Gifford Bristol BS12 6QZ Tel: 0272 228109 Fax: 0272 236091 email: simonc at bri.hp.com
