old-style-jpeg-compression.tif

This TIFF uses 'old-style' JPEG compression, which was overridden by 'new-style' JPEG compression in 1995. Some contemporary software cannot open these files.

The original implementation of JPEG-compressed data in TIFF had some serious problems. These problems are discussed in detail in TIFF Technical Note #2 (1995). This Technical Note also defines a replacement method ('new-style').

TIFFs that use 'old-style' JPEG compression can be identified from the value '6' (0x0006) of the 'Compression' tag (259/0x0103).

ExifTool XML-report included.
