> However, it works for "j2k_to_image" but not for "image_to_j2k". I

> kakadu (-quiet).
> 2. I lose the georeference of the pixels. When I convert to TIFF I
> lose it and I found no option in the functions. GDAL can read the
> geoinformation of JPEG2000 but it cannot be directly updated to a
> JPEG2000 file. Therefore, that is for me a limitation. Probably, there
> are some other options... but anyway, it would be nice if the
> application recognises that information automatically like with
> kakadu.
