Hello,

Actually, that would be the problem.  The gimp does load up the image, 
giving warnings about the tags it does not understand, and when one saves 
the image these tags are lost.  I have used the Gimp for various (fairly 
simple) image processing as a user, but I have not looked at the code or 
creating a plug-in, which I might look into doing (but, unfortunately, may 
be a bit limited on time) .  Documentation and a geotiff library can be 
found here, btw: http://remotesensing.org/geotiff/geotiff.html

Sincerely,

It has been almost ten years since I worked with GEOTIFF files, but IIRC
they are just TIFF files with a couple extra tags telling you where the
image is geospatially located.  That should mean that GIMP can open a
GEOTIFF fine, but there are no guarantees that it can keep the tags if you
then save it.  Note, I haven't checked this in a long long time, but it 
did
work then.
