Thanks for this report.But "ColorMode" is not the right tag to use, but "ColorSpace". Look here :


This tag have 1=sRGB, 2=AdobeRGB.

Let's me explain the status of NIKON makernote decoding with Exiv2:

- Current Exiv2 0.11 do not know ColorMode tag.

- Next Exiv2 0.12 do not yet know this tag. it's a bugfix release planed at soon (normally this week end)

- Exiv2 0.13 will know this tag, because i have backported current NIKON makernote from ExifTool to Exiv2. This implementation of Exiv2 is in a separate svn branch of repository named 'gettext'. It support NLS ! Look my commit here:


This Exiv2 0.13 version will be release just later 0.12, normally at Christmast, like digiKam 0.9.0 final. You can test current implementation of Exiv2 'gettext' branch to checkout source code like this :

# svn checkout svn://dev.robotbattle.com/exiv2/branches/gettext

Uninstall old Exiv2 release on your computer before to install gettext branch version. Clean up digiKam and kipi-plugins source code and recompile/re-install all.

To resume : yes digiKam will support Nikon ColorSpace makernote tag when Exiv2 0.13 will be released and it will do for digiKam 0.9.0 final.
