I also noticed another problem with the number of expected floats for TIFFTAG_REFERENCEBLACKWHITE in the documentation for TIFFSetField:
where it says:
That's also what the TIFF spec says in appendix A. Of course, other mentions of the tag specify 6 float. The spec also says:
The ordering of pairs is the same as those for pixel components of
the PhotometricInterpretation type. ReferenceBlackWhite can be applied
to images with a PhotometricInterpretation value of RGB or YCbCr.
ReferenceBlackWhite is not used with other PhotometricInterpretation values.
Which implies the tag will only ever have 6 values as both RGB and YCbCr have 3 components. libtiff always reads/writes 6 floats so it is definitely wrong to try to display 8 values.
Are there any objections to hardcoding the output of 6 values?
