Detection

OpenSlide will detect a file as generic TIFF if:

  1. No other detections succeed.
  2. The file is TIFF.
  3. The initial image is tiled.

TIFF Image Directory Organization

The first image in the TIFF file is the full-resolution image. Any other tiled images in the file with the “reduced resolution” bit set are assumed to be reduced-resolution versions of the original.

Associated Images

None.

Known Properties
