"Suspicious ExifIFD offset for PrintIM" error
« on: February 26, 2013, 11:55:04 PM »

So I'm not a stranger to command line tools but this has me baffled. There is a "Warning" field showing up in my Olympus C8080 EXIF with the value "Suspicious ExifIFD offset for PrintIM" that prevents me from doing anything to the file.

Specifically, I need to correct the EXIF ExposureTime and Aperture, as this was lost during processing.

Yep, I Googled this error message it and came up with exactly ZERO results... Unbelievable but true!!!

Any ideas?

Did you take a look at FAQ number 20?  With any luck, all you need is the -m option, but this FAQ tells you how to fix more severe problems too.
