Bug? Exporting JPEG, place metadata problem


Recommended Posts



I'm a new user of Daminion, and have had a good experience so far. However, today I have a problem exporting TIF images as JPEGs with some (long) metadata.


An example of the report I get:


#452 : P4110355_DxO.tif

Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.

Parameter name: USA|Utah|Arches National Park : value should be splitted with '|' char 4 times according to the Place specification

at PicaJet.Daminion.MediaProcessing.CatalogTagCollectionItem.SetComplexValue(MappingRule rule, String rawComplexValue)

at PicaJet.Daminion.MediaProcessing.CatalogTagCollection.WriteValuesToMetaTags(Boolean includeSynonyms, Boolean flattenKeywords)

at PicaJet.Daminion.ImageProcessing.ImageProcessor.ApplyMetadata(Object _ieImage, MediaInfo mediaInfo, ActionSetParams _params, IEnumerable`1 catalogTags) in c:\DaminionAuto\Code\MediaProcessor\ImageProcessor\ImageProcessor.cs:line 1611

at PicaJet.Daminion.MediaProcessing.TransformationEngine.TransformFile(MediaProcessingEngine engine, String fileRef, ActionSetParams _params, RotateAngle rotateAngle, IEnumerable`1 catalogTags, GetParamValue getWatermark)


The image has the following place metadata:



Arches National Park

Delicate Arch


The error happens on all images with the above metadata, but curiously other images export without any problems even though they have similar metadata such as:



Canyonlands National Park

Island in the sky


Is this a bug, or am I 'overloading' the metadata?


To be honest, the export is purely for upload to a website and so I don't actually need the metadata, so if a quick fix is to disable metadata export, I would be happy to be shown how.

Thanks for the prompt reply, Murat.


I have tried the same operation in 1070 and get the same error. However, your temporary workaround got me up and running for the moment.


I will send links to a sample file and my catalog for further investigation.

It seems that the "Arches National Park" was on the level of Location and then moved to one level up using the Move Out command, right?


I suggest you to do the following steps to fix the issue:

- Rename the "Arches National Park" to "Arches National Park - 2"

- Create a new "Arches National Park" below the USA\Utah

- Assign all images from the "Arches National Park - 2" to the newly created "Arches National Park"


It should works then.


We'll disable the Move Out command for the Place tag in the next Daminion builds.
