how do you use the term "hack" here?

you provided very good information about all the places the image
failed, perhaps you could provide some information about what you did to
the file with GIMP?
which filters did you use? GIMP is an image manipulation application,
so it is possible to manipulate the image in a way that a kiosk photo
printer might not understand it. "Export" means that there were some
additional things that the software knew needed to be completed before
the file format you requested could be made. This is the reason we
would need to know more information about what you told gimp to do to
