6.8.3-8: Error writing zero-length TIFF tags

Post by rwruck » 2013-03-12T14:44:22-07:00

libtiff doesn't seem to like zero-length custom tags such as Photoshop or Microscope:

convert: ./123770.tif: Null count for "Photoshop" (type 1, writecount -3, passcount 1). `_TIFFVSetField' @ error/tiff.c/TIFFErrors/562.

Since this is a TIFFError, convert exits with a nonzero return code, although the file is written (maybe incomplete).
A zero-length tag doesn't make much sense here anyway, so could you please test whether the profile is empty before writing a 37724 or 34118 tag in TIFFSetProfiles?
Currently, I don't know whether this also applies to "standard" tags such as TIFFTAG_ICCPROFILE.

This applies to any TIFF tag with variable length.

Here ist a simple EPS file that causes the error (0 byte 8bim profile) when converted to TIFF:

Code: Select all

%!PS-Adobe-2.0 EPSF-2.0
%%BoundingBox: 0 0 247 175
%%BeginSetup
%%EndSetup
%%EndComments
%%BeginProlog
28.346000 -28.346000 scale
-3.450000 -8.550000 translate
%%EndProlog
%BeginPhotoshop: 0
%EndPhotoshop
0.100000 setlinewidth
