Some TIFF files "View only" without any good reason

Postby Samoreen » Thu Jan 07, 2016 3:41 pm

Hi,

After the import of my Lightroom catalog into C1, I have some TIFF files that are marked as "view only" while some other TIFF files in the same folder have no particular problem. I have checked the access rights for these files in Windows, no problem. They have the same settings as the other files that are not marked as "View only".

Any way to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

If this can help:

These TIFF files are film scans that were edited in Lightroom. So they contain XMP data. But other TIFF files have been processed the same way and they are not locked as "view only". So I'm wondering what makes these "view only" files specific?

Got it! The files that are marked as "View only" have the metadata field "Photometric Interpretation" set as "BlackIsZero". That is, they were saved in Grayscale mode, not in RGB.

I was not aware of this limitation of C1.
