(vertical) image rotation in iPhoto
Authored by: claudio on Jan 19, '06 11:03:26AM

Was this true for iPhoto 5 on Tiger, hopefully not? If you're running Panther (Mac OS X 10.3.x) then EXIF-rotation is not systemwide supported, and I guess that this might affect iPhoto 5 and 6 on Panther, too.

On Tiger they all should be aware of EXIF-rotation.

Someone here to prove me wrong?

iPhoto 5 on Tiger makes a recompressed copy of every photo that is rotated (either by the camera's orientation sensor or by the user). This loses quality and wastes space. I hope the new version makes smart use of the EXIF orientation.

This is not an issue for me because I don't import with iPhoto directly. I have my own scripts I've rolled that make use of jhead to rename and rotate photos. jhead in-turn uses jpegtran to perform the rotation which is done losslessly. The orientation flag is then reset.
