Fix Image Rotation

Description

Fix Image Rotation plugin fixes image orientation based on EXIF data. Fixes the mis-oriented images clicked via mobile phones.

Functionally it filters all uploads and if EXIF->Orientation is set to a number greater than 1, then the image is re-saved with a new orientation before the image is processed by WordPress.

How it works?

When an image is clicked by a camera or a phone, it stores some additional information about the image. One such information is Orientation. This plugin makes use of the Orientation value stored by the camera/phone and rotates or flips the image based on that.

Where’s the settings page?

This plugin works out of the box and does not require any settings.

Can I contribute to the plugin?

Yes you can. As mentioned in the description, just fork the GitHub Repo, make changes and send pull requests.
You can even contribute by adding banner images and logos for the plugin. If you are familiar with GitHub, then fork the above repo and add the images in a folder named assets, and send pull request; else you can submit URLs to the images as support request.

Magic!

This plugin magically rotated my photos to the correct orientation. I uploaded photos from my phone and my Lumix camera. Without the plugin, some of the photos were on their sides depending on how I had my camera or my phone turned. I re-uploaded the same photos after installing the plugin, and the plugin correctly identified the photos which needed turning, and turned them properly. Before the plugin, I couldn’t even tell very easily which photos would need rotating because they were correctly oriented on the computer, and only showing up sideways on upon upload — without the plugin. There are no settings for this plugin. It just does whatever it is supposed to do. Note that the plugin works upon upload and does not correct photos uploaded before the plugin was installed. I see some people discussing the loss of EXIF data. There is probably a way to preserve EXIF data while using this plugin, but I wasn’t uploading that data anyway. It’s a huge relief that I do not have to tediously individually turn each photo as needed. Bravo!

Just works

Great plugin, quickly fixed all my issues with exif orientation data. 10/10

Did not work.

Coffee drinking notwithstanding, it did not do a thing. Half of my portrait images still load landscape.

Excellent

An excellent plug-in for fix rotation image uploaded to app android or ios.
