Hello All

Sebastian thanks a lot!!!

I got updated code, i compiled it, it's working fine but i didnt check for subIFD.

There are some confusion about subIFD and your code snippet.

In your code, you are setting TIFFTAG_PRIVATE_OFFSET for SubIFD offset. Is there any use of it??. we can get the offset of any subIFD with this tag only TIFFTAG_SUBIFD.

But whtever i knw that any IFD can have more than one SubIFD, in that case we have to use SubIFD offsets, which is the feature of our tiff image architecture.

how do we deal with the image which have 2 oe more SubIFDs.

what i earlier used to do generally we use TIFFSetSubDirectory(input_tiff,subifdoffset) function to read SubIFD, i think this should also be modified.

One important question, wht is the flow of reading and writing when a image have one aur more subIFD's.

i am writing over here wht i have done with my code, please do correction if any

  1. Read main IFD ( for example IFD 0)
  2. Get offset of subIFD if any
  3. read subIFD by using TIFFReadPrivateDirectory(TIFF* tif, toff_t diroff)

if we have more than one subIFD then all the entries goes in tif->tif_privateFieldInfo.

And at the time of writing we are not able diffrenciate which entris belongs to which subIFD.

am i right?? So we have to read n write one by one subIFD ( act my aim is just reading n writing any tiff image)

and wht about the offsets of subIFD, we have to finally set all the offset of subIFD before writing main IFD or libtiff will take care of it.

please suggest me.

Thanks
Anurag Singh
