tiffany stands for any tiff. The tiny Python 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 now appear on PyPi.
During the development of DiDoCa (Distributed Document Capture) we were confronted with the problem to read multipage Tiff scans. The GUI toolkit PySide (Qt) does support Tiff, but only shows the first page. We also had to support Fax compression (CCITT G3/G4), but Qt supports this.
