 201 By default all recognized fields in the TIFF image file directory (IFD) are
 202 loaded into the native image metadata object. Which fields are loaded may be
 203 controlled by setting which TIFF tags the reader is allowed to recognize,
 204 whether to read fields with unrecognized tags, and whether to ignore all
 205 metadata. The reader is informed to disregard all metadata as usual via the
