Reviews

does not work on 4.7.5

Tried it on WP 4.7.5. The result: when I upload an image I get a HTTP error and the image does not get a thumbnail in the Media Library.

Not working with GitHub EXIF examples either

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).

Take a photo on mobile, it uploads as solid black

I tested repeatedly, but if I take the image during upload, it shows up as solid black when this plugin is active. So it didn’t fix the problem, it destroyed the image. Not sure if this is only when taking the photo at the time of upload or not. I am also using jQuery cropit, so it could be the combination.

Didn't work for me

My problem is some vertical images uploaded from iPhone 6s plus are rotated 90°. Without this plugin, WordPress corrects all the generated thumbnail sizes, but leaves the original full size image sideways. With this plugin activated, WordPress doesn’t correct any of the thumbnails, so all sizes, including the original full size, are sideways.
