[Image-SIG] PIL: TIFF images loaded as 16 bit signed integers

You are right, when I look at the values obtained via getdata that are
passed to numpy there is no problem. The issue is getting the pixel
values with getpixel, which for certain size data sets is faster than
using getdata. Basically if the dataset is less than a certain size,
building my array via iterating with getpixel is faster than loading a
512x512 image into an array. Because my readout was using a small
testarea, getpixel was being used and not getdata.
