Automatically fixes the rotation of JPEG images using PHP’s EXIF extension, immediately after they are uploaded to the server. Plugin requires no configuration, it simply hooks itself to WordPress’ upload procedure and takes care of everything.
Developed during my internship at DX Wave.
- Are there any requirements?
Yes, the plugin requires PHP’s EXIF extension to be enabled.
- Do I need to make any configurations?
No, the plugin takes care of everything and automatically rotates all your JPEG images immediately after they are uploaded.
I want a solution to this issue, and after reading Dave Perrett's excellent post on EXIF Orientation values here I tried this plugin with the example test images on GitHub here. By default with WordPress vanilla install currently, the images uploaded to the media library and placed in a post are not 'corrected' and maintain their incorrect orientation, which is not good. After adding & activating the plugin, deleting the images permanently and then importing them again, I got the same result. So it seems the plugin has no effect. Can anyone else corroborate this? Getting the same result with this. UPDATE: After testing this (which didn't work) and many other plugins, I've confirmed that Fix Image Rotation plugin does work with 4.7.2 version of WordPress (vanilla).
+ It breaks whatever image you try to upload.
- Initial release.
