Rotate Flag in JPEGs ignored, why? - Jackie78 - 2012-04-26 18:30


I have several images made with my Canon digital camera, and of course any good image viewer like Faststone Image Viewer 4.6 interpretes that "orientation-flag" correctly and displays pictures upside-down if they were taken this way. If your camera has a rotation sensor, and writes that information to the exif-data of that picture, any decent image viewer in this world reads that flag and displays the pictures correctly.

Every program, except XBMCs picture viewer, the images are always displayed horizontally alligned, and the question is why?

because you have deactivated the image rotation in your picture settings?

Also, note that quite a few (typically crappy) apps when you transfer the image off the camera rotate the image but don't update the exif tag, so you may be finding that XBMC is rotating as the tag tells us to, but the image has already been rotated.

Lots of things for you to explore Smile
