Sam,

as you recommended some months ago, I installed your TIFF tools to examin our (bogus?) TIFF files.

Now I wonder how to change the contents of a single tag field of a given file. I assumed I can do it by means of TIFFOpen and TIFFSetField, but the man page of TIFFOpen says "If an existing file is opened for writing, all previous data is overwritten."

So does this mean there isn't a way to easily change single fields?

Thanks for your response
Hannes Waldmann
