I'd prefer the professional way rather than the quick-and-dirty one: If offsets in the file are changed to be 64 Bit, then ALL offsets should be changed.

Rainer,

Given time to reflect, I agree that my proposal would lead into a morass of problems somewhat akin to segmented programming on the x86. I agree that a better approach is 64bit offsets used everywhere offsets apply.

In addition, some other changes could be discussed in this context:

I suppose that since the directory format would already have to change to handle the 64bit NextIFD, and Offset values, it wouldn't hurt to do the rest.

I suppose so.

Because this approach requires fundamental changes to the directory format I think it will be significantly harder to pull off than the offset32 approach. Now I am waffling again. It makes my brain hurt.

Regards,
