Hi Renate

The easiest way to fix this is to rename the problem images so that they
don't have "funny characters" (eg umlaute) in the filenames. (Are there
many?) Its ok in the metadata, but Greenstone doesn't seem to be able to
handle them in the filenames.

What version of Greenstone are you using?

Regards,
Katherine

PS If you send me a couple of the images with their current (not
working) filenames, I can test it here with the new release.
