Resolution Message
GIMP 2.6.11 WinXP

I've been opening my RAW images in Irfanview, converting them to .tif images, and then opening the .tif images in GIMP for processing, but I've been getting a pop-up window (see screenshot) that says:

"Calling error for procedure 'gimp-image-set-resolution':
Image resolution is out of bounds, using the default resolution instead."

What does that message mean?

RE: Resolution Message
Nothing dangerous. An image can have an "intended print resolution" associate, so that image editors know at what size to print it or can display measurement in final size units instead of pixels (see Image/Image properties). Obviously Gimp doesn't agree with the value it reads in the file (wrongly set by IrfanView?).

RE: Resolution Message
Thanks for your response. The only thing I'm doing in Irfanview is to convert the RAW image to a .tif file, so I don't know if it's wrongly setting image properties or not. (I used to use UFRaw to convert my RAW images, but I didn't like what UFRaw was doing to my images.)

But as long as GIMP isn't deteriorating the quality of my images, then I can live with the resolution warning.

Might be worth asking the IrfanView people...
