Note:
6 5 Andreas Huggel
* 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.
7
* 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.
8 2 Andreas Huggel
* 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.
