Just a quickie - is there an eassy way that you could add a photo rotating tool to the site? A few that i`ve rotated the hard way have then uploaded back their original way for some unknown reason, meaning i`ve then had to delete and reupload thhem, which takkes time (in dodgy internet cafes) and eats into your monthly allowance (big though it is).

No huge thing, but if theres a quick fix, would be great.

Cheers

Funny you should mention this, Pete just sent out a new Roadmap to Sander and me today that includes this. The bad news, it's not a quick fix kind of thing and comes in pretty low priority. That is, unless some wicked coldfusion guru out there already has the code lying around and we can get it off them :)

Not quite sure how the photos would be being uploaded the original way after you rotate them; was this a bug when uploading?

Actually I think it is a quick fix deal - I doubt it'd take me more than two days. I've also seen the semi-large number of non-rotated photographs uploaded (and suspect that number will increase with moblogging), so if I get some time next week or the week after, I might just go for it.
(Gelli: no promises though - I might be mistaken about how easy this is.)

Ah well, in that case!! I noticed the number increasing too, so it would definitely be a worthwhile 'fix'!

Honestly, not sure. One or two after i rechecked them seem to have reverted, as though the changes hadn`t been saved (they had) on the PC i was using, whilst a couple were fine locally, but had twisted on uploading.

As a random idea for Sander, is there a way to use the same basic thing that fax viewer does in windows.

If it is a quick fix, so much the better! cheers

Weird! No idea what to say on that one

I knew I had seen this before! The old version of ACDSee does this. I have no ideas why it does it, but I just recreated it tonight. Here's what I did:

ACDSee Classic ver 2.44.
I rotate the image using ACDSee, and it looks fine. Says 3008x2000 changes to 2000x3008.
I then open the image in Photoshop and Viola! it's landscape instead of portrait !!

Ok people, thanks are in order to Sander - the rotating function has now been added. Works pretty darn nicely if you ask me :)

No more crooked photos!

Thanks Sander! Works like a charm; several of my miss-rotated photos now look normal again :)

You have to remember to refresh your gallery page after a rotation though or it puts the unrotated pic in a rotated frame... very funky!

Gaah! Safari? If so, it's doing a really bad job of caching, as I specifically added a query string to a just rotated image to make it a unique (and thus not cached) url.
I doesn't do any harm of course, but it does look unprofessional. And dagnabbit, my fix should've been enough to solve that...
