Vertical jpeg photos rotate to horizontal question
« on: November 10, 2014, 06:36:28 PM »
I ingest jpeg photos to Photo Mechanic, add captions and tag the ones I want to upload to the papers website to be published.  How come the photos I shot vertically show up on the website as horizontal?  How do I change the photo rotation so that the vertical photos stay that way?

You can use the Apply Rotation to JPEGs command on the Tools menu.

http://wiki.camerabits.com/en/index.php?title=User_Manual_Flat_View#Apply_Rotation_to_JPEGs:

Or you can save the image to a new file, but I wouldn't recommend this unless you were going to scale or watermark the image in the process since you'll get some quality loss due to JPEG compression.
