The link to the previous post I was discussing is:

<a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.voy.com/5188/1/2305.html">http://www.voy.com/5188/1/2305.html</a>

I was able to get it to work, however I am concerned now. The only way I could get it to work is by NOT freeing the graphics at the end. This worries me as it may cause a memory leak? I'm now having problems with saving the rotation of ONE page in the middle of a multi-page tiff ... any suggestions? I'm researching a file stream approach as I think the approach I used for the Delete page is not going to work.

This is the code I used for the Deleting page, if you have any suggestions in regards to memory leaks or such, please let me know :
procedure TformTiffViewer.DeletePage1Click(Sender: TObject);
grNewTiff, grOldTiff : TTiffGraphic;
iFrame : Integer;
strImgFileName : string;
if mrOK = MessageDlg('Confirm deletion of page ' + IntToStr(mstrFrame)
+ ' from this image?', mtConfirmation, mbOkCancel, 0) then
{ The user has chosen to delete the frame. In order for this to work }
{ the old graphic must be loaded minus the missing frame and saved as }
{ a new tiff file. }
{ Create the local directory for processing documents in one shot. }
if not DirectoryExists('c:\CACM') then
if not ForceDirectories('c:\CACM') then
raise Exception.Create('Cannot create c:\CACM');
{ Initialize strImgFileName }
strImgFileName := 'C:\CACM\cacmedit.tif';

grNewTiff := ImgScrllBx1.Graphic as TTiffGraphic;
grOldTiff := ImgScrllBx1.Graphic as TTiffGraphic;

for iFrame := 1 to ImgScrllBx1.ImageCountFromFile(mstrImgFileName) do
grOldTiff.ImageToLoad := iFrame;
{ skip the images you want to delete }
if iFrame = mstrFrame then
if iFrame = 1 then

RenameFile(strImgFileName, mstrImgFileName);

updownPage.Min := 1;
mstrImgCnt := mstrImgCnt - 1;
updownPage.Max := mstrImgCnt;
lblMaxPages.Caption := InttoStr(mstrImgCnt) + ' page(s)';
EditPage.Text := '1';

{ Reload the image starting from the first page }
ImgScrllBx1.LoadFromFile(mstrImgFileName, 1);
