Hi Gilbert,

Thanks for your prompt response.

I just checked those TIFF files were produced with Omnyx , and i know Omnyx
scanners is not supported by openSlide, so is there any way-out for me so i
can read those images?

I am worried that only option left for me is to write my own driver using
 this  (
