Extensions: .tif, .tiff

Provide read support for TIFFs produced by an FEI SEM microscope.

This format is based on TIFF, and supports the same parameters.

FEI microscopes append metadata as ASCII text at the end of the file, which this reader correctly extracts.

Parameters for get_data

discard_watermark : bool
If True (default), discard the bottom rows of the image, which contain no image data, only a watermark with metadata.
watermark_height : int
The height in pixels of the FEI watermark. The default is 70.
