RasterTagMetadata Class

Summary

Extends the RasterMetadata class to provide functionality for dealing with tag metadata stored within various image file formats.

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
WinRT C#
C++
[SerializableAttribute()] 
public class RasterTagMetadata : RasterMetadata 
<SerializableAttribute()> 
Public Class RasterTagMetadata  
   Inherits Leadtools.RasterMetadata 
public sealed class RasterTagMetadata : Leadtools.RasterMetadata  
@interface LTRasterTagMetadata : LTRasterMetadata 
public class RasterTagMetadata extends RasterMetadata implements Serializable 
function Leadtools.RasterTagMetadata() 
[SerializableAttribute()] 
public ref class RasterTagMetadata : public Leadtools.RasterMetadata  

Remarks

The TIFF file formats support a number of comments that are saved and loaded using predefined tags.

If the comments do not meet your needs, you can define your own tag for saving additional non-raster data in a TIFF file. For example, you may want to define a tag to save annotations.

The TIFF 6.0 Specification sets aside a range of private tags that developers can define. To avoid conflicts with files created by other developers, you can register your tag by contacting Adobe Developer Relations. The E-Mail address posted on The Unofficial TIFF Home Page is gapdevsup@adobe.com.

Some restrictions apply to this function if you use an IFD to indicate to which page to write the metadata. See the Loading And Saving Large TIFF Files topic for more information.

Example

This example will save then load some tags to/from a tif file.
