I have done it many times (clipping a raster with a polygon layer or by extension) but today I got an error for the first time and I don't know how to solve it. I am always using the same type of raster layers. When running the clipping tool I got the following message:

Algorithm Clip raster by extent starting... GDAL command: gdal_translate -of GTiff -ot Byte -projwin 410282.185971 4694950.41162 410783.882475 4694524.96815 -co COMPRESS=DEFLATE -co PREDICTOR=1 -co ZLEVEL=6 -co TFW=YES "C:/Users/FERRAN ALA/Desktop/Justificació Fontanals/QGIS/Topo 1_5000/bt5mv20sd0f283077st1r031.sid" "C:/Users/FERRAN ALA/Desktop/Justificació Fontanals/QGIS/background/image.tif" GDAL command output:

'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xf3' in position 201: ordinal not in range(128) See log for more details

Does anybody know what that is?

    You should not use characters with accent mark (typical of catalan) and spaces in your paths. Probably, it is the source of your issues. – xunilk Jan 9 at 19:00
  • Please, see this link referred to unicode xf3 character: codetable.net/hex/f3 – xunilk Jan 9 at 19:04
  • Hello, thank you for that information. I removed all accents and it worked perfectly. Thanks! – Ferran Jan 10 at 8:49
