TIFF Tag Reference, Exif Tags

Exif tags are used largely to encode additional information related to image generation by digital still cameras. Exif is the abbreviation of 'Exchangeable image file format', though this can be argued to be a misnomer, as Exif does not relate to TIFF like e.g. JFIF relates to JPEG.

The Exif IFD is pointed to by the Exif IFD tag.

There are actually three private IFDs specified by the Exif standard. The other two are the GPS IFD and the Interoperability IFD. For the Exif specification and other related information, see Exif.org.
