Does someone by any chance have a Delphi unit file available that can handle TIFF file loading on Android and iOS for use by FireMonkey (registers itself with TBitmapCodecManager)?

This function looks like it should be pretty easy to convert to FireMonkey.

Thank you, I will have a look.

Interestingly, I just got XCode 9.0 and imported the iOS SDK 11.0 and at least on iOS it now loads TIFF files (from the few I tested). It is even mentioned in the iOS SDK notes that I reviewed after the fact. It seems that FireMonkey hands off the loading of images to the SDK instead of using native Delphi libraries.

Hello,

it might well be that the loading of images is mostly done by the OS.
It also well is that putting the answers below the text answering to in
these groups is being considered standard. Please change to these well
tested standards. Thanks.

Greetings
