First use - 2 unreferenced error msgs - no luck :(
« on: January 08, 2012, 06:29:44 AM »

I'm just trying to geotag a pic form a KML.

I've follow instruction form

I expected to get the error "No track points found in GPS file" so I check that the KML had a Timestamp.

Instead I got 2 errors, for which I can't find any help either on the forum or Google.

Warning: Error opening GPS file 'Place.kml' in File:Geotag (ValueConvInv)
Warning: PrintIM pointer references previous PrintIM directory - test.JPG
Warning: No writable tags set from test.JPG
    0 image files updated
    1 image files unchanged

Thanks for your help.

Hi Nodje,

There was something wrong with your command line, or exiftool couldn't find the KML file because it was in a different directory.  If the KML file isn't in the current directory, you must specify the directory in the command:

exiftool -geotag c:\some\directory\Place.kml ...

The PrintIM warning is minor, and exiftool will fix this when the file is rewritten.

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).
