2010.10.14 10:47 "Handling images with the wrong type for the metadata tags", by Ian Ashley

Dear all,

We are trying to handle images where the type of the TIFFTAG_RICHTIFFIPTC ,
TIFFTAG_XMLPACKET and TIFFTAG_PHOTOSHOP tags has incorrectly been set to
UNDEFINED rather than BYTE. The tiff library therefore cannot return the
contents of these tags using TIFFGetField. Is there a way to get the content
of these tags without changing the library?
