Property "DoesLargeExist" throws "InvalidOperationException"

Apr 20, 2009 at 8:43 PM
... with message "Original Dimensions are not available"

This is the sequence of steps to acquire images:
- Disable caching
- Add keywords to PhotoSearchOptions object
- Add page number
- Add number of photos per page
- Add licenses
- Perform photo search
- Exception here: Iterate through the list of returned photos, determine whether Large photo exists and save it, if not do the same for medium.

Is there anything else that I may be missing? Cannot find anything relevant in the documentation. Thanks!

You need to make sure you are asking for the OriginalDimensions when performing your search, and that the user in question has a pro account so that that information can be returned by the API. OriginalDimensions are turned on with the PhotoSearchOptions.Extras property being set.

Hi, samjudson

Thank you for your answer. I have done what you suggested but still get the error once in a while.

When you say "user in question", are you referring to the author/owner of the photo?

Yes, I'm referring to the owner of the photo.
