In a plugin that only allows exporting as TIFF, the image will be exported as JPEG instead on OSX, Windows is not affected.

Unfortunately, there hasn't been much support for the SDK for years. You can increase the likelihood that Adobe might act on your bug report if you package up a complete minimal plugin in a .zip, put it on Dropbox or similar, and then include here precise steps for how to run it and reproduce the problem.

John, thank you for your continued support. I will follow your suggestion and prepare a proper, minimal, reproducible example. I hope the will help move this issue forward in a productive manor.

The poor support and responsiveness from Adobe makes me really sad though. I was hoping for more. I just recently got into photography and this is a disapponting experience.
