JPEG Rotation
« on: May 14, 2006, 08:59:16 PM »
Hi there,

I have a question regarding rotation. First I just rotate all necessary thumbnails, then I apply Tools >> Rotate JPEGs. All is fine in Photo Mechanic, the icons in Finder are rotated, but not re-created (no picture). Is there any way to make Photo Mechanic to do that so I don't have to use different program to make the icon picture to appear?


Thanks

Marek

I'm not sure what you're saying.  You say "the icons in Finder are rotated but not re-created (no picture.)"  If there is no picture then how can you tell that the icons are rotated?

PM is not currently generating new Finder icons when a photo is hard-rotated.  I could add that.

Sorry for not being clear. The icon is rotated (orientation-wise) but it lost its picture, so it will just give you the ordinary JPEG icon.

OK understood, PM currently doesn't generate a new Finder icon.

Do you have the "Create Finder icons during copy, ingest or save as" checkbox in the Files tab of the Preferences dialog checked?  If not, then Finder icons will not be created.  The "Apply Rotation to JPEGs..." command obeys this preference as well.
