Error message with SR2 file


I got an error message while uploading a SR2 file. "The uploaded file contains errors: identify: /tmp/phpI0GMsF: TIFF directory is missing required "ImageLength" field. `MissingRequired' @ warning/tiff.c/TIFFErrors/493. no page data found in tiff directory!" This happens with 2 different files. Uploads do not work with Chrome and Mozilla, which is odd, but without any error message. Yann 06:32, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

I tried uploading by URL, and I got "Error fetching URL: Operation timed out after 25000 milliseconds with 7765624 out of 21035488 bytes received." Files are there: [1]. These are the source for commons:File:Bougainvillea, Sanchi, MP, India.jpg and commons:File:Bougainvillea, Sanchi, Madhya Pradesh, India.jpg. On second try, I have the same error as before "The uploaded file contains errors: identify: /tmp/URLcbhYr5: TIFF directory is missing required "ImageLength" field. `MissingRequired' @ warning/tiff.c/TIFFErrors/493." Same problems with 2 different browsers. Yann 10:28, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

I also tried uploading a simple JPEG file (File:Sculpture of elephant, Gwalior Fort, MP, India.jpg), and it works. Yann 10:45, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

I already set $wgVerifyMimeType = false, but apparently this isn't quite enough. I will investigate. Dcoetzee 11:00, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Looks like this is an issue with the PagedTiffHandler extension - it tries to validate TIFF uploads on its own. I've set $wgTiffIdentifyRejectMessages to array() and this should fix it. Give it another try now. Dcoetzee 11:03, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
I also fixed the issue with remote uploads timing out after 25 seconds. They should be able to run for over 14 hours now. Dcoetzee 20:28, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Now I get "The uploaded file contains errors: no page data found in tiff directory!". Yann 05:01, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
Okay I hacked PagedTiffHandler to never reject an upload. Tested it with one of your files, it works fine now. Please give it another try. Dcoetzee 13:22, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
OK, it works now. Thanks, Yann 19:09, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the invite

I intend to upload all NEF RAW files, I could not upload NEF files, there is a bug that still do not understand. It´s a great way to back up what really matters, the source files. I've been thinking that in special cases where the image should be cropped or the face of a person must be hidden (for legal issues), I do not think of a reason to do so in these cases.

On the other hand, I have noticed that the link on the upload page "Files That You normally can upload to Wikimedia Commons" does not exist on commons, it would be nice to fix.

I want you to know that you have my collaboration with this project. I hope that this product will be supported by other projects soon, I still do not understand that does not have this functionality commons

King of hearts I explained to me. I've uploaded my first test file. I try not to upload many files, only the important files to avoid overloading the server. Thanks --Wilfredor (talk) 14:57, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Sorry for the slow response! I tend to respond more quickly at my Commons talk page. Please upload as many files as you can! I'll make room for them as I consider your photos quite valuable. Also your raws are 1/4 the size of mine. Very excited to see your NEFs so far. Dcoetzee (talk) 04:45, 26 November 2012 (UTC)



I just try CommonsArchive for the first time : File:Présentation Wikipédia Littérature nov. 2013.odp. Did I do everything right ?
