When using the Lightroom API to make a web gallery and using the outlined elements below it will cause Lightroom 4 and 5 to crash.
["photoSizes.thumb.cropMode"] = "minimum",
You crop your images to a panoramic ratio like 2500px X 400px and add a water mark to the image it will crash, normally on rendering the gallery in Lightroom or on export.
Removing the watermark prevents the crash.
Can this be fixed in an update?
