Supported image formats

The following table shows supported image formats and support level for release 0.18.

Note:
  • Write support for RAW image formats is new in release 0.18. Be sure to test carefully if your applications work well with images modified by Exiv2.
  • Reading other TIFF-like RAW image formats, which are not listed in the table, may also work. Exiv2 was so far only tested with the more popular RAW image formats.
  • Support for GIF, TGA and BMP is minimal: Exiv2 recognizes the image format, assigns a MIME type to it and is able to determine the image height and width of the image.
