I was able to write tiff files with bit depth of 8 and 16, both using Magick++ (6.9.1-4) and from the command line (6.9.1-1) and view those images using other image viewers (Nuke, Paint.Net, Autodesk Maya built-in image viewer and Gimp).
I was also able to write tiff files with bit depth of say, 5, 7, 11 and 13, both using Magick++ (6.9.1-4) and from the command line (6.9.1-1). When trying to view those images using the software from above, I have either weird results or error messages (from Nuke: Sorry, cannot handle images with 7 bit samples.) Of course, when I use ImageMagick imdisplay, the image looks fine.
My concern is that I was not able to view images written by IM with bit depth different than 8 and 16 with any other image viewers. Of course, I know you are not responsible for other software not handling the files written by IM. But beside ImageMagick imdisplay, would it be possible for you to give me the name of one software that would handle tiff images written by ImageMagick with bith depth of say, 7?
Here's the command I use from command line (same results as with Magick++)
Code: Select all
convert bird.tiff -depth 7 bird7_out.tiff
here's a sample image:

Thank you very much for your help!
