Looking at the tiff spec apparently planarconfig is not a required tag. It defaults to 1. I have a tiff that has a planar config of 1. My understanding was that when a tag is at at default value then it doesn't have to be included (copied to the new file), because that value will be assumed. However, if I do not copy planarconfig into the new file before copying over the image then I get a

atafieur: b.tif: Don't know how to copy/convert image.

Is there something I am missing about how tiff works?

It sounds like the reading program is not properly supplying the default value.
