1.97b1-serious bug in Edit GPS function with exiftool

Post by oops66 » Wed Nov 04, 2009 3:11 pm

Hello,
If I use a .jpg with a name containing one (or some) space, then the "the image file name.jpg" file is deleted :bugfixed:
To reproduce (windows xp):
1-) into the XnView 1.97b1 Browser mode menu, select a jpg with spaces into the name ... then : Edit\Metadata\Edit GPS .... Write
2-) then the image is deleted

Here this exiftool function works with Windows XP sp2, if jpg files do not contain a (or some) spaces in the name.

FI: this function does not work here into Ubuntu + Wine, maybe it will be interesting to have an option to have the ability to use the perl exiftool version in this case, instead the stand-alone .exe windows version ?

I hope with the ability to use the perl exiftool version (/usr/bin/exiftool for Linux + Wine OS) so :
First try to locate the /usr/bin/exiftool file --> if does not exist --> try to locate the XnView1.97-b1/AddOn/exiftool.exe file --> if does not exist --> Window fail warning "...You have to install the Exiftool plugin first" :D
And with a menu into the View Mode too (not only into the browser mode) - http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.p ... 065#p79065

In the XnView Wiki, you can improve the user guide / documentation / F1-help for XnView (classic/Windows) and for XnViewMP

Fixed in 1.97b2 with the stand-alone exiftool windows plugin version, (OS: Win XP)
But no menu "Edit GPS" into the View Mode. http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.p ... 065#p79065

And does not work with exiftool perl version or stand-alone exiftool windows version (OS: Ubuntu + Wine) http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.p ... 067#p79067
