Dear list,

I am a new user to libtiff. The task I hope to accomplish is simply to modify the XMP metadata of a TIFF leaving the other parts of the file completely unchanged. But I understand that libtiff will ignore any custom tags which might be in the TIFF. And I have seen warnings in this mailing list about the 'blind copying of tags'. So my concern is that while I am reconstructing the other (non-XMP) portions of the original TIFF, that any custom tags might be left out. Could the list recommend an approach to solving my problem?

Thanks very much,

Jeremy
