TIFFReadDirectory: Warning, Unknown field with tag 384 (0x180) encountered. TIFFReadDirectory: Warning, Unknown field with tag 1093 (0x445) encountered. TIFFReadDirectory: Warning, Unknown field with tag 2 (0x2) encountered. TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, ASCII value for tag "DocumentName" contains null byte in value; value incorrectly truncated during reading due to implementation limitations. TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incorrect count for "JpegProc"; tag ignored. TIFFReadDirectory: Warning, Photometric tag value assumed incorrect, assuming data is YCbCr instead of RGB. TIFFReadDirectory: Warning, SamplesPerPixel tag is missing, applying correct SamplesPerPixel value of 3. _TIFFVSetField: Warning, SamplesPerPixel tag value is changing, but SMinSampleValue tag was read with a different value.
