GifTiffLoader is a Python module to automatically load Tiff and Gif files as numpy arrays using PIL.
Specifically it is designed to deal with 8-bit and 16-bit images typically used as the standard formats for microscope images. It is also designed to deal with image stacks (Animated Gifs and Multi-page Tiffs) and image sequences (both 3D and 4D sequences).
GifTiffLoader relies on two other modules, FilenameSort and cmpGen.
