Reading files is easy. You can use either RandomAccessFile or DataInputStream on top of FileInputStream. E.g.

public static final int BUFFER_SIZE = 4096;

File tiffFile = new File("image.tif");
DataInputStream tiffStream = new DataInputStream(new FileInputStream(tiffFile));

byte[] buffer = new byte[BUFFER_SIZE];

int bytesRead;
while ((bytesRead = tiffStream.read(buffer)) >= 0)
{
  // Process data buffer
}
