Hi,

I recently downloaded the Exif file format specification(*) because of the increasing demand for its support in our programs. As i saw, it it is not properly speaking a new file format (at least for images ) but it uses the good old TIFF and JPEG open design to add some information by the mean of 2 private Tags (APP Markers in JPEG). Internally the Tag seem to use a structure similar the structure of a Tiff file header with Tag numbers/Type/Offset...

Before investigating deeper, I wanted to know if anyone is ready to share his experience or code with the me and this mailing list?
