Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to use libtiff to read a tiff file that has some binary data stored in the Artist tag. The data was put there by another program that I have no control over. I can't read the data because libtiff is treating it as an ASCII tag. When I attempt to read the field, libtiff stops reading when it hits the first NULL byte in the data. I've tried using TIFFMergeFieldInfo to change the parameters for that tag but It didn't seem to work. I know this is a non-standard use for the tag but I was wondering if anybody knew how I might be able to read and write this data.

Thanks,
Steve Terhar
