Similar Problem with InDesign
Authored by: kyngchaos on Aug 18, '04 03:44:42PM

That got me to poking around a bit. This is a bit different. GraphicConverter is writing a valid TIFF file, tho it's a bit odd. A TIFF has a basic header - it identifies it as a TIFF, then says where the metadata starts (and the metadata says where the data starts). Most TIFF writers start the metadata immediately after the header, but GC leaves a few bytes' gap between the header and metadata and specifies so, which is legal.

InDesign is what's broken here - it should follow the offsets to where they lead, but instead (I assume) looks right after the header. I checked and it looks like this happens in ID 2 as well. Photoshop does it right, so it can read it, then writes a TIFF without the gap, which ID likes. Time for a bug report to Adobe.
