Some TIFFs cannot be read

TIFFs that are missing the RowsPerStrip IFD entry throw the following exception:

Exception in thread "main" loci.formats.FormatException: Sorry, non-uniform RowsPerStrip is not supported
	at loci.formats.TiffTools.getSamples(
	at loci.formats.FormatReader.openBytes(
	at loci.formats.FormatReader.openImage(
	at loci.formats.ImageReader.openImage(

This can be reproduced using tiff/brian/tiffany.color.tiff, or pretty much anything in leica-tcs/.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

(In [4797]) Make sure that *all* of the RowsPerStrip entries are less than or equal to the number of rows in the image. Closes #357.
