Property Value

Type: Boolean
True if client code is allowed to change vital tags

When certain tags are modified indiscriminantly, it is possible to permanently damage a TIFF file. In dotImage 5.0 and earlier, it was not possible to modify these tags as doing so was considered an error.

In the 6.0 and above, these tags are now accessible. The list of vital tags includes:

Strip Byte Counts, Strip Offsets, Tile Byte Counts, Tile Offsets, Bits Per Sample, Rows Per Strip
