This (Bug #11784) can't really be classified as Closed, because it still won't enable 'large' thumbnails to be extracted from the EXIF data.

My application requires that I extract the actual thumbnail image from the Exif data of the digital image.

Will READ-EXIF-DATA be fixed to handle large thumbnails - or just ignore them?? (at least the fix extracts the other data)

Can you try this with 4.1.1?

Try with CVS or PHP 4.2 please...

In addition to not being able to read the 'large' thumbnails,
with 4.0.6, read_exif_data() returns a fatal error for images
produced by my casio gv-10, but works fine for those produced by
my fuji finepix 1400.  This prevents me from extracting the
image information that I require.

With 4.1.2 read_exif_data() simply dies, and the browser reports
"document contains no data".  Sample images available on request.

The exif data is readable by windows apps, so is definitely there.

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately your version of PHP is too old -- the problem
might already be fixed. Please download a new PHP
version from

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.
