Confirmed with v4.4.5.2 under windows 7 x64.

While testing I found out that LO also doesn't import TIFF with deflate compression.

Still not possible to open it in Draw or insert it into Writer. It gives an 'unknown image format' dialog.

I confirm this bug is still present in current LO version:
Build ID: 1:6.0.7-0ubuntu0.18.04.10

While testing I can confirm that LO generate an error when inserting TIFF image compressed with LZW, deflate, or packbit compression.

A message like "unknow image format" appears.

Import of uncompress (but huge) tiff works, but requires the user to convert its image library and have enough storage to do it.

This enhancement would be useful for LO interoperability especially for unconfirmed users who use this error to reject LO usage.
