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.
- Turn on the plugin.
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!
Works like magic, saved my life. I was going to pull my hair out because all images i uploaded from smartphone were rotated, then I found this awesome plugin. This fixed everything and saved y hair too 😉 Thanks very much!
Especially login to say thank you.
