Batch resizing bug

Post by Bassmus » Sun Mar 12, 2006 5:02 pm

Hello.

I recently discovered what seems to be a bug in XnView. I have an image gallery at my website. And since I don't want to upload very large images, I use the batch resizing function in XnView. Everything seems to be working fine, and the images *do* get resized. But even though the "keep image dates/information" option is chosen, the images with "short side up" doesn't seem to keep this information. I use Gallery2 as an image gallery system, and all the "lying down" images are presented with correct information and correct date, while all the "standing up" images are presented with todays date and no extra information.

Tried batch resizing the images with Ifran View, and everything worked just fine.

FYI, the images are JPG images, resized from 1200x1600/1600x1200 to 768x1024/1024x768.

Could you send a sample, and parameters used?

Of course.

I've zipped four images, where two are the original size (one standing up and one lying down) and the other two are resized versions of the original ones.

The files can be found at this link: http://www.oysteinjohnsen.net/filer/bat ... ze_bug.zip

I've also uploaded the four images zipped in the file above to an album in my image gallery. Notice that the images lying down, both the original and the resized one, are presented with correct dates. But while the original image standing up is presented with correct date, the resized one is presented with todays date. Check it out here:

The option used, was the 'Resize' transformation under 'Batch Convert'. The parameters can be seen here, at this screen shot:

I hope this helps.

Would you by the way give me a nudge when you've checked out the images? I don't want these files lying on my web server for all time. :)

Please send me an email at oystein.at.oysteinjohnsen.net.

I've tried, and if i have "Keep original date", the date for the 2 output files will be like original... Portrait or landscape picture... So it's really strange...

it works for me too.

@Bassmus: give us an exactly step-by-step description what you did&clicked&have checked.
maybe we go other ways to reach the same goal :-)
