export to flickr always exports original version

Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot


I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 and f-spot version

In f-spot I have a lot of raw (.crw) images. These images have extra versions that I converted to tiff. If I select a couple of images and choose 'export to flickr' then I see in the preview pane the edited (tiff) versions like I expected. But if I then click the export button, not the tiff versions are uploaded as I would expect, but the original raw version. (Of course, this fails...)

I cannot reproduce this, does this happens only with crw files? may you get an f-spot debug log with f-spot --debug &> f-spot-debug.txt perform the operation and submit the file to the report? thanks in advance.

Here's the log file. The error is Filesize is zero. I get the same error when I'm trying to upload a .crw file directly to flickr. Uploading a tif file (if the original file was a tif) works fine. Is there a problem with two different file types for two versions of the same photo?

Could it be that I was jumping to conclusions? Yesterday I read that the free Flickr account does not allow uploading of a file that is larger than 10 MB. It could be that uploading a crw file and uploading a too large file results in the same error by the Flickr plugin. If so, should this report be closed or may be changed to a wish for a more understandable error message?

looks pretty similar, linking the report, thanks.

I am experiencing a similar problem except I'm working with jpegs. I have an jpeg image that I cropped and want to export the cropped version to flickr but F-Spot doesn't seem to give me the option of selecting anything but the original.

This is on Intreped AMD64

Looking closer the active version does get uploaded but the original thumbnail is displayed regardless of which version gets uploaded.

Looks like my problem is unrelated. Sorry about that.
