Some buffoon left a snarky comment yesterday regarding the orientation of the pictures in my latest galley. Well, I rotated said pictures to their correct orientation with a very simple little command.

Let’s see your Windows box do that. :-p

Siwwy wabbit. My Canon records orientation in the picture and the images are rotated automatically with no manual intervention required.

Now that I think of it… this would almost seem like an example of Linux not supporting standards??

Actually, it’s more a case of Linux only doing exactly what I tell it to do, leaving me completely in control of my data and my system. My Canon S410 stores frame orientation as well but it doesn’t rotate the image in-camera. When I was still using Windows XP to manage my photos, I still always had to click that silly rotate button on each photo I wanted to turn, does the Canon software turn it for you or does your camera do it internally?

^^ Either way Windows sure as hell doesn’t do it!

(grr at not being able to edit my own comment – lets blame that on Windoz too!)

The Canon software does it, as does any other software that supports the established standard. A lot of the photo programs I use support it.
