Maybe the TIFF library coordinates are different from OpenGL's. OpenGL texture coordinates have their origin at the bottom left of the image. The majority of the image file formats have their origin at upper left corner of the image. You can solve this by yourself moving the pixels of the image or scaling the OpenGL texture transformation matrix by a factor of -1 in the X axis.
