Auto Rotate photos problem
« on: June 30, 2020, 06:04:54 »

I am using Multi Commander to auto rotate photos using the EXIF data using the Picture tools> Rotate Pictures function.  The function works well, but for some reason when rotating a directory of photos, some will fail the operation (around 3-5%).  Not really a big deal, I can go in manually and rotate them, except the software seems more intent on deleting the failed photos instead of keeping them, ready to be done manually.

Is there a fix for this in the works please, or I am doing something wrong in the first place?

Thanks so much for your help,

It is using the EXIF meta data in the file that say in what rotation the picture was taken.
Are you sure that information is available and is correct in the files that failed to rotate ?
You can enable the column name "Picture (EXIF) - Orientation" to see what the orientation EXIF tag is
