Is there such thing as a ".tiff editor?" [closed]

What I'm looking for it something that automatically translates the hex in tiff files into the corresponding categories and values that are found in a tiff file, and hopefully be able to add/remove text rather easily. Does such a thing exist?

"If it is just a parser rather than an editor you want,
Hachoir parser might work -- though I have never tried it myself.

In general, I think there should be modules in Perl, Python, etc to parse TIFF files.
Therefore, there should be tools to dump headers for TIFF.
Hachoir parser is a Python tool."

"TIFF files are images, so there's no much text in them. Most of the image processing programs will be able to handle them (Photoshop for example).

Since you mention text, I'm guessing that you have faxes saved as TIFF files, so text in them is not really text--you'll need OCR software which will scan TIFF file into text document which you can then edit.

Unfortunately I can't recommend free image editing or OCR software on Mac since I'm not a Mac user, but perhaps someone can chime in."
