I'm curious about how your library communicates the type of pixel data
contained in an image. For example, TIFF can hold integral data of various
sizes, floating point data, or complex data. If a user passes my application
the path to a TIFF image, how would I determine the type of data contained in
the image? Am I supposed to use any_image::_dynamic_cast() within a series of
try/catch blocks?
