It should show the original orientation when the file is just displayed and has not been edited.

What about 2. in this post? viewtopic.php?p=175853#p175853

No, because if you save it, exif orientation will have new value, so it shows the current value.

The current value before saving is "Rotate 90 CW".

What do you means by inconsistent metadata ?

Pierre, I am very grateful for XnViewMP. But it is very strenuous and meanwhile annoying to repeat many arguments two or three times. Please, read my posts fully.
With respect to "inconsistent meta data", it is deliberately explained in the linked post above.

Sorry but when you load an image file in 'edit mode', EXIF orientation field is changed, so you see 'no rotation' in EXIF tab. If you save it, the file will have this new orientation.
The only way to see the original orientation of the file is to check the Exiftool tab

The Makernotes field is not used (should be perhaps changed too)

The global problem is not related to EXIF orientation re-save but with the catalog, please check next version, i've fixed a problem similar to your problem.

Lets get some dust off this thread, i have problem with images taken in portrait mode as JPEG files not showing properly in folder thumbnails only, they however do show properly once folder is open.

Thumbnails show sideways on second folder.
1.jpg
Thumbnails show properly, once folder is open.
2.jpg

I have all three options set.
- General>Rotate images according to EXIF orientation
- Browser>Misc>Change EXIF orientation
- Browser>Misc>Use lossless if possible

Uploaded files here.

Re: Preview thumbnails are not rotated

I am also trying to figure out why my images are not displaying consistently. I am coming from ACDSee and all my thumbnails are displayed with the proper orientation, however, in XnView MP only the .ARW files seem to orient properly in the Thumnails. I did rotate the images in ACDSee according to EXIF info, but this does not impact the way the images are displayed in File Explorer, where they display the same as in ACDSee.

I have Rotate images according to EXIF orientation tag, Change EXIF orientation ONLY (if Possible), and Use lossless rotation (if possible) all checked.

Also, it seems my .ARW thumbnails are of much higher quality than my jpegs. Is there a reason for this?
Lastly, my video files, which consist of .mp4 and .mov files are not showing previews in the Tumbnails. Any way to fix that?
