The Image Rotation Repair plugin simply fixes image orientation based on EXIF data. This is primarily a patch for mis-oriented images delivered from iPhones. Functionally it filters all uploads and if EXIF->Orientation is set to a number greater than 1, then the image is resaved with a new orientation before the image is processed by wordpress.
NEW – supports postie plugin!
No documentation needed.
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? 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).
I was running into issues where I needed to upload a bunch of photos from a client that had been taken from their iphone. WP was doing all kinds of funky rotation and this straightened them out!
