In tiff.h (LibTiff 3.7.0), the highest datatype I'm seeing is TIFF_IFD = 13.
I can't remember where I got it from, but I'm having TIFF_UNICODE = 14, and TIFF_COMPLEX = 15. That may be correct, as the first new datatype for BigTIFF is TIFF_LONG8 = 16 (according to my own BigTIFF page http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/bigtiff.html, that was based on the Wiki).
- Can someone confirm these types TIFF_UNICODE and TIFF_COMPLEX?
- If so, perhaps they should be added to tiff.h?
- The actual question I'm having is however: what is the size and layout of the TIFF_COMPLEX datatype (if it indeed exisist)?
