image rotation[edit]

OMG. This is not a question and definitely not an answer.

Sometime in the development of gimp-1.3, maybe in the 2 series, an option started popping up for the rotation of images. I always tried to opt to keep things they way they were. The rotation suggestion was a reaction to the exif data.

Years later, I ran into a friend who was using a cellphone to view images with and when looking at mine, they did not rotate correctly when the camera was turned. It was a moment of "oh that is the reason for that". And a moment where we were both annoyed.

I have not one single idea of how to solve my problem as I do not want to rely on software to rotate my images, but my friend was annoyed due to the expectation that my images behave correctly on the phone.

Maybe the answer to your question lies somewhere in this but more, it is a warning of a potential oncoming logic conundrum.--RaboKarbakian (talk) 14:50, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, the issue is images that have an "Orientation" setting in Exif, which GIMP detects and gives a message at startup. In previous times, there were broken image viewers around that would ignore the Orientation setting completely. For this particular file, there are two different Orientation in Exif, so the behaviour is random (more at Template_talk:Wikidata_Infobox#Rotated_image. --ghouston (talk) 22:47, 31 August 2018 (UTC)
