I still need a 'compressed TIF'-loader.

I have heard good things about libtiff, a freeware TIFF library, but I have never used it. Try a quick search and see what turns up.

Just a friendly plug:

If you're looking for an ideal graphics format, take a look at PNG ("Ping") files. It is a public domain format, cross platform compatible, LOSS-LESS high compression (better than GIF), supports up to 32-bits (per channel I believe..), supports alpha channels, gamma settings, and progressive loading. It was designed by a consortium as the replacement for GIF after GIF became a royalty stinker.. There is a publicly available library (with source code) available on the web for all kinds of platforms (unix, windows, dos, mac, etc.).. Look for "libpng".

Gifs are 8-bit, jpegs are lossy, bmps are huge. Compressed TIFs are great but I can't load them without a library. Where to get one?
