Weird text in queue list while bulk processing photos

I’ve only noticed it once so far but when bulk processing some scanned images (jpeg, if that matters), the last entry in the queue before being processed had an HTML <FONT… > tag appended to the file name rather than the typical [ai filters] text… the Font tag went away once the image was processed

I’ve not noticed it again but will keep an eye out for it
Steps to reproduce issue:

  1. open several photos to bulk process
  2. save the files (without view each individual file)
  3. scroll to the bottom of the queue and look for an HTML tag rather than the expected text

Topaz Photo AI [v1.x.x] on [Windows/Mac]

Looks like it’s outputting the variable name instead of the content of the variable “ai filters” (the file names get dynamic suffixes, depending on the enhancements that were applied per file, e.g. “-enhance-sharpen” and so on). Should be pretty easy for Topaz Labs to fix (if they consider it a bug and not behavior by design)

This is expected behavior if you toggle the Add Applied filters to filename setting and the image has not been loaded yet. The AI filters for that image are not determined until it’s loaded, so this placeholder displays in the export queue.
