Greetings,

Before you say there is no such thing as a clipping path in a TIFF file, you better try importing TIFF's (with clipping path) produced by PhotoShop into PageMaker.

Anyway, here is what I'm trying to find out. I need to support this clipping path in my app, and I can't seem to find a spec for how they are doing it. I did find the "PageMaker extensions to TIFF" specification which indeed has a clipping path tag specified in it, but after looking at many TIFF files I see that they don't use this TAG. Instead they use their own TAG (34377). The data in this TAG seems to be in some kind of MAC Resource format.

If anyone has any clues, I would appreciate it.

Thank you,
Glenn L. Bennett
