Description

Keywords or comments on the image; complements ImageDescription.

This tag is without the character code limitations of the ImageDescription tag.

The character code used in the UserComment tag is identified based on an ID code in a fixed 8-byte area at the start of the tag data area. The unused portion of the area is padded with NULL ("00.H").

The specification defines these possible values for the first 8 bytes of the tag data:

ASCII (hex 41, 53, 43, 49, 49, 00, 00, 00): ITU-T T.50 IA5
JIS (hex 4A, 49, 53, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00): JIS X208-1990
Unicode (hex 55, 4E, 49, 43, 4F, 44, 45, 00): Unicode Standard
Undefined (hex 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00): Undefined

The value of Count N is determined based on the 8 bytes in the character code area and the number of bytes in the user comment part. Since the TYPE is not ASCII, NULL termination is not necessary.
