Consider adding getBitsPerPixel() to IFormatReader

'int getBitsPerPixel()' would complement the existing 'int getPixelType()' method. It would provide the number of "valid" bits per pixel, not the number of stored bits per pixel.

For TIFF files, getBitsPerPixel() would return the value of 'BitsPerSample' in the first IFD.
