Why does the program rotate my images?

Post by waynethetodd » Thu Nov 08, 2018 6:38 pm

Hello again everyone!

Just wanting to inquire why the image object decides to rotate my landscape images to portrait when they are brought into WWB?

I am able to use the rotate tool to fix it, but the program oddly doesn't allow rotated images to have their object-fit property changed, so I can't do that! Frustrating!

The application does not rotate your images automatically.
I think that the source images has the wrong orientation.
When you view the image in Windows then it will sometimes automatically display the image rotated based on the camera settings, however the actual image data is not affected.
WWB does not modify your image in any way.

Windows rotates the image (for display only).
WWB does not rotate or modify the image, it will be displayed/published "AS IS".

The image rotates because some browsers (Chrome & Opera as opposed to Foxfire), read the EXIF data appended to the image. By removing the EXIF Tag 'Orientation' you can fix this problem.

I use a free command-line utility called exiftool (www.exiftool.org). Install the utility and open a command window. The format is:
exiftool -Orientation= file_name

It will respond: 1 image files updated

You can check Orientation by: exiftool -Orientation file_name. If there is no response, the Tag is blank. Otherwise it might respond:
Orientation: Rotate 90 CW or something like that

Once you remove the Orientation Tag the image will no longer is rotated.

I never use photos directly from camera to webdesign. It's always best to import it into a photo editor and optimize the photo and save it in correct angle and size. In this way you get rid of the cameras auto settings.
