NConvert Orientation after rotating

Post by unbewusstsein »

First, i have an image with :

Code: Select all

    Format               : JPEG TrueColor (v1.1)
    ...
    Width                : 4288
    Height               : 2848
    ...
    Orientation          : Top Left
    ...
which I rotate according to exif by :

Code: Select all

$ nconvert -jpegtrans exif -o 10-42--DSC_0193-rotated.JPG 10-42--DSC_0193.JPG
afterwards, i read info (of '10-42--DSC_0193-rotated.JPG') giving :

Code: Select all

    Format               : JPEG TrueColor (v1.1)
    ...
    Width                : 2848
    Height               : 4288
    ...
    Orientation          : Top Left
    ...
notice width and height are truly interchanged but Orientation remains the same.

is this an already reported bug ?

I'm using :

Code: Select all

** NCONVERT v6.17 (c) 1991-2011 Pierre-E Gougelet (Sep 17 2012/10:53:49) **
        Version for MacOS X  (All rights reserved)
if reading info from another file from which exiftool gives :

Code: Select all

Orientation    : Horizontal  (normal)
nconvert gave me, badly :

Code: Select all

Orientation          : Top Left

RE: The rotation doesn't change orientation flag

I was racking my brains over this, I spent all last night trying to figure it out and concluded it must be a bug. Thanks for clearing it up!
