I am trying to open a tiff file with multiple images in it in C++, however I get a lot of warning images like "unknown field with tag 65000" or field with tag 65001" upto 65030. I   "unknown searched the know tags but there is not anything with 650xx.

What does that mean? Currently I can open the tiff file with IrfanView without any problem.

These are just warnings. Feel free to ignore them. However, some proprietary TIFF formats might require something in those tags in order to display correctly, and then the image might not look as expected.

If you are designing a GUI, you might want to create a error/warning log in the interface so that the user can look at any warnings without being annoyed.
