gimp 1.2.4 can also load it with lots of warnings by libtiff
"Compression algorithm does not support random access". (BTW, xpaint
2.6.8 can also not load a JPEG-compressed TIFF file created by GIMP)
Adobe Photoshop 5.0 Limited edition does not load it with a message that
the compression algorithm is not supported.
