Unable to export shapefiles or tif / incorrect sRGB profile

Hi everyone,

My problem with Gplates is related to the export function.
I am using he data from Cao et al. (2017), rotations of Muller, Young and Cao, and the Present Day Coastlines.
Apparently the funcion works fine, but nothing is created in the directory. I tried with shapefiles or tiff.
Console shows me this warning:
libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile

So I am not sure how to solve it.

Thanks in advance

Hi Jesus,

The libpng warning is unrelated. You can ignore that.

The reason no shapefiles are exported is because there’s no topologies in the data you’ve loaded (and it looks like you’re exporting topologies). Maybe try the Reconstructed Geometries export instead.

Also it looks like you’re exporting colour rasters but that won’t export the filled polygons that I see in your screenshot. There’s not currently an easy way to do that - have a look at this thread for a non-ideal solution using the Image (screenshot) export.

Thank you for your promp reply.
Indeed, the libpng wasn´t the problem.
I changed to reconstructed geometries and I got the files.
