Description

The set of inks used in a separated (PhotometricInterpretation=5) image.

The specification defines these values:

1 = CMYK. The order of the components is cyan, magenta, yellow, black. Usually, a value of 0 represents 0% ink coverage and a value of 255 represents 100% ink coverage for that component, but see DotRange. The InkNames field should not exist when InkSet=1.
2 = not CMYK. See the InkNames field for a description of the inks to be used.

LibTiff defines:

INKSET_CMYK = 1
