I'm trying to write a program that converts a standard BMP file into DNG. I know that isn't practical for many things, but I'm curious as to what the minimum required tags are for a DNG image. The DNG specs at http://www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/products/photoshop/pdfs/dng_spec.pdf show what tags are available, and mention whether or not a given tag is required, but this document doesn't have a list showing only the required tags. So I'm wondering, does someone here have a list of only the required tags for DNG images?
Just discovered there's a dedicated DNG section to the forum at Digital Negative (DNG) which is where this question should probably be, but don't know if think I can move this message myself. Maybe a moderator can move this post.
I'm not a host or moderator, but the fastest thing for you to do is copy the text of your post, start a new post in the DNG forum and paste your text there.
No telling when and if a host will read your post here.
