View Full Version : Error when watermarking
November 12th, 2007, 01:05 PM
I'm getting this error when trying to upload photos:
Error creating watermarked original! Error code: 1
Command: "/usr/bin/composite" -compose over -gravity SouthEast 1,3,4,8,11 '/path/to/my/photopost6//data/817/picturename2.gif'
I do notice double // between photopost6 and data but I'm not sure why that is. What should my server paths and urls be set to in Global Options? Some need a trailing / and some don't or?????

Also in my config-int.php file should the server paths to both my vB installation and your PhotoPost installation contain the trailing / or not?

I would suggest you check your global options in admin and make sure your path does not have double slashes there and save. Then go to Storage Options in Admin and hit revert and save twice to load the correct path.

Have a good day let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Wait, I take that back. I had accidently uploaded to the wrong CAT, so I deleted them and tried to upload them to the correct one and I'm getting the error again .. only this time without the double /

Fixed ... I just realized that for some reason the path to the watermark image for that SUB cat was 1,3,4,8,11
Weird, but I believe it's all fixed now.

Okay double check those paths as well just to be sure.

I know this is an old thread BUT something in the code is putting the
location data in the category as the watermark name - I was sucessfully able to upload using GD2 but it would fail after a random number of uploads so I switched from using gd2 to imagemagick - and the imagemagick uploads fail with the error:1 error - in looking the location of the watermark was placed in the categories watermark file field
I have seen it a few times today not sure why

new categories that are created have "1,3,4,8,9,10,12" as the watermark file name

I have passed this along to Michael before somewhere it seems an array is being entered there. Until Michael finds this make sure when creating a category on the edit screen you double check the info entered.

I think the "1,3,4,8,9,10,12" is the watermark location information for the parent watermark ... SE NW etc expressed in numbers

That should assist you buddy.

That should assist you buddy.
We are running 6.1 BUT the line number didnt match up .... (Mine was 3346 )
I found the line and changed it - well see if that helps
