i got back some scaned tiff's from a photo lab. openning with xv or gimp
just got a warning message: unkown field of tag 34665(0x8769). i want to know wrong with thoese files and how do a work around. what's
below is the output of tiffinfo on a tiff file in question,
| TIFFReadDirectory: Warning, /home/portfolio/scan/zmm/16-4.tif: unknown field with tag 34665 (0x8769) encountered.

for the tiffinfo output, i still has two questions desiring kind help from you.
1. what means "ICC Profile: <present>"? and what is ICC?
2. i noticed this file is uncompressed. so what's the benefit the lab save
in tiff rather than a bmp? result
thanks in advance.

And he was fifty-two and it suddenly struck him that he had never really given anything of himself. His life was for no one and nothing. He was almost crying saying that.
