Rotate photos using exiftool and AppleScript
Authored by: Dr. T on Oct 26, '09 10:53:34AM

Don't most modern graphics, photo editing, and image cataloging applications know how to rotate a JPEG image in 90 degree increments without altering the underlying JPEG data? Do we really need special scripts or applications to do this?

Rotate photos using exiftool and AppleScript
Authored by: robogobo on Oct 26, '09 01:43:47PM

You would think so, but for example if you rotate an image in Preview and then upload it to a website, the rotation doesn't take (and it recompresses). Not sure how it's working, but I used to have to use an exif utility when rotating. Lately I've gone back to using photoshop, which also does recompress.
