Bug Description

Not sure if this project is still active at all. It has some features that would be extremely useful to me but I am having some problems. Forum on the site seems dead.

I am trying to use a text action to write the exif DateTimeOriginal onto the image.

I have tried numerous variations but all give the same type of error:

lib.safe.UnsafeError: Text Action:
  Text: The following name(s) are invalid: Exif_Photo_DateTimeOriginal
Save Action:
  File Name: The following name(s) are invalid: Exif_Photo_DateTimeOriginal

I am using phatch .0.2.7

I finally solved this..

 {'fields': {'Color': '#FF0000',
                     'Font': '/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSansMono.ttf',
                     'Horizontal Justification': 'Right',
                     'Horizontal Offset': '100%',
                     'Orientation': u'Normal',
                     'Size': u'3 %',
                     'Position': u'Custom',
                     'Text': u'<Pexif_DateTimeOriginal>',
                     'Vertical Justification': 'Bottom',
                     'Vertical Offset': '100%',
                     '__enabled__': 'yes'},
          'label': 'Text'},

Documentation could be much clearer!
