2005.12.02 18:39 "[Tiff] "Unknown field with tag" error", by John Engelke
I run the following on Mandrake 2006.0 with ImageMagick 6.2.4 installed (though I think that is irrelevant) and what I believe (don't quite know how to tell yet) is libtiff 3.6.1:
tiffsplit foo.tif sp
I get the following errors:
TIFFReadDirectory: Warning, foo.tif: wrong data type 1 for "XMLPacket"; tag ignored.
TIFFReadDirectory: Warning, two.tif: unknown field with tag 34665 (0x8769) encountered.
The split I was trying to accomplish (separating layers from a Photoshop TIF file) does not work. The file works fine in Photoshop. Any suggestions or assistance would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I try the following from ImageMagick which crashes with errors:
identify -verbose foo.tif
and seemingly produces a similar error then a stack trace. I believe that ImageMagick also uses libtiff.
