Hi all, Thank you for your guesses and intention to help. The cause of the failure is the same banal one that I ran into a couple of years ago - the name of the directory.
I am so misfortunate that my user account was created originally with the hungarian special character Á. Moreover, this folder included the characters ü and ő. For God knows why, windoze allows creating directories using these, however a lot of applications cannot handle them properly. This is the case now. I just simply copied the pictures to a folder that's path uses only standard ascii characters - and it works!
