Differences From TIFF and Exif
There are no major departures by the TIFF/EP standard from the TIFF standard, except that many of the TIFF tags are ignored.
The TIFF/EP standard does however have a few notable differences from the Exif standards:
- All tags used by TIFF/EP which are defined by the Exif standard to reside within the Exif Sub-IFD now reside directly under the first (main) TIFF IFD.
- The Exif IFD Sub-IFD, Interoperability Sub-IFD and the MakerNote Tag have all been omitted.
- Unlike the TIFF 6.0 standard, the TIFF/EP standard defines a method of dealing with thumbnail images. This however is different from the method that is used in the Exif standard.
- Several tags defined by the Exif standard have been re-defined in the TIFF/EP standard – see table below.

Famous quotes containing the word differences:
“When was it that the particles became
The whole man, that tempers and beliefs became
Temper and belief and that differences lost
Difference and were one? It had to be
In the presence of a solitude of the self....”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
