For the longest time, I’ve been rotating images on Gallery2 manually (usually using IrfanView beforehand) and then uploading them to my ftp server. Of course I only rotated copies and left the originals intact. Anyway, I got sick of it for some reason today and remember this USED to work where Gallery2 would auto rotate based on the EXIF data.
I tried searching the admin panel, but didn’t really have much luck.
I tried to see if there was a rotation plugin and there was none.
I checked out Jpegtran since it’s the tool used for image transformations (specifically rotation), and there didn’t appear to any problems.
Searching for auto rotate or auto rotation on search engines didn’t really result in anything too useful besides the fact that starting with Gallery 2.2, auto rotate was an added feature.
Finally I found a thread that told me how to enable this. Apparently the place to do this is:
Site Administration > EXIF/IPTC > Rotate Pictures Automatically
Woot! Auto-rotate works! I’m thinking about enabling “Preserve Original on Rotating”, but not sure if I want to do that or not, since I assume when people click on “Download photo”, they’ll might see the photo in the wrong orientation.
