Title: Bug: EXIF Orientation tag isn't being applied to uploaded resources
Post by: perditi0nspam on June 10, 2019, 10:41:42 PM
Hi everyone,

When taking a picture with a digital camera, the orientation is saved as part of the metadata (EXIF). Since Windows 10 takes this tag into account, even pictures taken sideways or upside down appear correctly in Windows 10.

However, uploading pictures as resources to Studio-Pro doesn't take the tag into account. This can be very problematic for those who don't use software to correct the orientation of pictures before uploading to Studio-Pro. Suddenly pictures that look normal on your computer look sideways or upside down under Resources.  Using Scenes to rotate pictures is obviously a very limited workaround since no one wants to assign Scenes based on the orientation of the original photo!

Expected behaviour:  When uploading a picture as a resource, take into account the orientation so that it will always appear correctly.

you are correct - studio pro does not use the EXIF metadata.  as a workaround, what you can do is you can use tools like IrfanView to rotate the image to its proper orientation and do a Save As and remove the EXIF tag. after, you can then upload the image with the correct orientation

best regards
