Rotate JPEG Pictures Automatically with JPEG Picture Auto-Rotator
The problem: pictures in wrong orientation needs to be rotated.
You probably take a lot of pictures in portrait orientation with a digital camera, esp. when you take pictures of people indoors. However, when you view the pictures on the computer, the pictures are displayed in portrait mode. Normally, You would have to open the images in JPEG format in Windows Photo Viewer or some other photo editing software and then rotate the photos by 90 degrees either clockwise or counterclockwise. If you have a lot of pictures, it would be very painful to do the manual rotation work one by one. Have you ever wondered if this can be done automatically? The answer is YES and it doesn't take rocket science to do that.
JPEG Picture Auto-Rotator helps you rotate photos automatically.
The truth is, most modern digital cameras are already equipped with the correct sensor to detect if you are taking a portrait picture. When you take a portrait photo, the camera will store the correct orientation information into the EXIF header of the JPEG photo file. Any software can use the data stored into the EXIF header to rotate the picture back into the correct orientation. Therefore, we have created a free software named "JPEG Picture Auto-Rotator" to do this job automatically.
