Add Custom TIFF Header Tags to an image

9880

QAID # 9880 Published

Question / Problem:

Is it possible to store additional information as part of a TIFF image? For example, is it possible to add a custom tag or custom information into the TIFF header of an image?

Answer / Solution:

No, the Ascent Capture API does not support any capability to modify the TIFF image or the header in the TIFF file.

It is possible to do so through the ImageControls Toolkit. This requires a Custom Module to be developed using ImageControls to replace the Scan module, and would entail a significant amount of development.
