values of exif:orientation

Post by herb »

Hello Pierre,

During the past days we had lots of discussions about "Origin" (see viewtopic.php?f=82&t=43349 ) and e.g.: Question to Rotation of images (see viewtopic.php?f=82&t=43350 ).
This brought me to a test with *.jpg images and the values for exif:orientation defined in Exif-standard.

Please see the following table with values displayed by XnViewMP (in Info --> Exif --> Camera ) and values used by standard

Code: Select all

- 1: top-left (1)	Horizontal (normal)
- 4: bottom-left (4)	Mirrored vertical
- 5: left-top (5)	Mirrored horizontal and rotated 270°
I would like to propose that XnViewMP also used the values defined in standard, because they are more clear (at least for me).

Thanks in advance
