Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8; format=flowed

Hello,

I want to use .tiff files in Processing. I can load .tiff images into a Processing sketch if the image has been made by Processing. I cannot load other .tiff files. Does anyone know enough about both gimp and Processing to help? There is clearly something in the metadata that I need to discard or change.

Thanks, Paul

'TIFF' has been described as 'Thousands of Incompatible File Formats'. I've seen warnings in gimp, in the past, when opening tiffs created by a proprietary application (they were created many years ago), but at least they opened.

An overview of the formats is at wikipedia.

Perhaps you could raise an issue athttps://github.com/processing to see if the requirements are documented anywhere ?

Thanks Ken,
That was a very good suggestion. I found the relevant code at: https://github.com/processing/processing/blob/master/core/src/processing/core/PImage.java#L3012

Now I just need to find someone who understands it! Any ideas?
