NOTES:

  1. The Engine is able to load 'old style' JPEG compressed TIFF image files (TIFF compression=6).
  2. On loading, 4-bit greyscale images are converted into the 8-bit greyscale format, and 4-bit palette color images are converted into the 8-bit palette color format.
  3. When an 8-bit palette color image is saved into JPEG format, it is converted to 24-bit color.
