Tiffany - Read/Write Multipage-Tiff with PIL without PIL

Tiffany stands for any tiff. The tiny module solves a large set of
problems, has no dependencies and just works wherever Python works.
Tiffany was developed in the course of the *DiDoCa* project and will
always appear on PyPi.

Version 0.6.1

This version uses the new int.from_bytes/to_bytes methods from
python3.2 and emulates them on python2.6/2.7 . This migration
was tested using pytest.

Tiffany is quite unlikely to change anymore until user requests come,
or I get better test data:

Testing with larger tiff files

The implementation right now copies data in one big chunk. I would
like to make that better/not limited by memory. For that, I need
a tiff file that is a few megabytes big.
Can somebody please send me one?

Extending Tiffany?

I'm also thinking of

- an interface to Qt (without adding a dependency)

- a command line interface, to make tiffany into a new tiff tool,

- support for other toolkits that need to handle tiff files.

Ideas about this are most welcome.

Please let me know if this stuff works for you, and send requests to
<tismer at> or use the links in the bitbucket website:

cheers -- Chris
