GIMP ends faulty EXIF report to stderr
My Panasonic TZ-70 camera outputs broken EXIF tags in JPG images, probably when it thinks flash would be a good idea. GIMP detects this fault if the EXIF data is displayed with (File|Properties|Advanced) but the error report is only written to stderr. Nothing is displayed on the desktop to alert the user. I only found the report because I was running GIMP from the command line.
GIMP itself works fine, apart from:
- not making the error visible to a desktop user
- preserving the error even if the image is modified and exported as JPG.
The first attachment is an edited image containing this messed-up EXIF data. The second attached file, exif-flash.txt, shows GIMP's stderr output.
