Note:
6
* Write support for RAW formats is new in 0.18. Be sure to test carefully if your applications work well with images modified by Exiv2.
7
* Reading other TIFF-like RAW files may work. Exiv2 was so far only tested with the more popular RAW image formats.
8
* 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.
