Hello folks,

This Problem could be solved with the patch in the bugzilla report 1320
http://bugzilla.remotesensing.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1320

It add the following interface for private sub IFD support:
extern void TIFFMergePrivateFieldInfo(TIFF*, const TIFFFieldInfo[],unsigned int);

extern  const TIFFFieldInfo* TIFFFindPrivateFieldInfo(TIFF*, ttag_t, TIFFDataType);
extern  const TIFFFieldInfo* TIFFPrivateFieldWithTag(TIFF*, ttag_t);

extern  int TIFFSetPrivateField(TIFF*, ttag_t, ...);
extern  int TIFFVSetPrivateField(TIFF*, ttag_t, va_list);
extern  int TIFFGetPrivateField(TIFF*, ttag_t, ...);
extern  int TIFFVGetPrivateField(TIFF*, ttag_t, va_list);
extern  int TIFFWritePrivateDirectory(TIFF*, toff_t*);
extern  int TIFFReadPrivateDirectory(TIFF*, toff_t);
extern  int TIFFReadPrivateDirectoryWithFieldInfo(TIFF*, toff_t, const TIFFFieldInfo[], size_t);

In the attachment is an example Interface for the ATR private tags.
The code below comes from this files.
greets, Sebastian
