issue tiff saving and custom tags (double arr)

Recommended Posts


There is an issue saving custom tiff tags:  "double" array changes to "undefined"  (see "orig" tag attach to "saved").

Note: Double Arrays are saved  with field_passcount = TRUE, first param before data is fieldcount!    (e.g. libtiff: TIFFSetField(PTiff, MY_CUSTOM_DATA, 5, Data))

I can not say whether it happens also for a single double or other Array data types.

I added a tiff with custom tags so you can try out.

Best regards

TIF support in paint.net is minimal and provided on a "Gee if it works - that's great" basis ( http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/19468-lab-color-space/page__view__findpost__p__330287)


This means that there is unlikely to be a change in the way PDN handles TIF images. Especially since you're using custom tags.


Do you really, really, really need to use TIF?

BTW this probably works a lot better in the latest version (currently 4.2.7). I've put in a whole bunch of metadata related work into the 4.2 series of updates.
