Someone gave me 2 byte tiff image files that are not the usual II- style tiff images. (If you open a tiff image with a text editor you will probably see that the first two characters are II). The "magic number" (which is the first two bytes of the file) specify the byte order. It is either II for litle endian or MM for big endian.
The images I was given are MM. Evidently neither the imread() function nor the Tiff() object (two built-in MATLAB routines) can read these files. A search of the internet and File Exchange for MATLAB code to read this type of tiff file turned up nothing. Does anyone know how I can read them? Thanks, ImageAnalyst
