Tropy Photo automatically imports weird description

Hi,
when adding photos to tropy, some get a weird extra metadatum consisting in a long string. I cannot figure out why certain photos in tropy show these entries and others don’t. I compared the properties of the files and I couldn’t find any reason why. These long strings cause problems because tropy refers to them for auto-suggest, thereby considerably slowing down the application.

Can I prevent tropy from creating this extra metadata when importing a photo?

The metadata looks like this in tropy:

And the whole string looks like this:

Thank you very much!

Hi,
would you mind to share this image so we can have a closer look?

I guess the description is stored as a JPEG comment, which we’ve started to import in the last release.

Here’s the file. Thank you!

It seems like our forum system strips the JPEG comments of the image away. Could you provide a download link by any chance?

But as far as I can see the image has no proper JPEG comment …

Thanks, I can reproduce the issue with that image.
