TIFF Tag PlanarConfiguration
How the components of each pixel are stored.
The specification defines these values:
1 = Chunky format. The component values for each pixel are stored contiguously. For example, for RGB data, the
data is stored as RGBRGBRGB
LibTiff defines these values:
PLANARCONFIG_CONTIG = 1;
The specification adds a warning that PlanarConfiguration=2 is not in widespread use and that Baseline TIFF readers are not required to support it.
If SamplesPerPixel is 1, PlanarConfiguration is irrelevant, and need not be included.
