Thumbnail views inverted down - 90 degrees anti clockwise...

Post by Ironhide » Tue Dec 09, 2008 4:04 pm

as above

In my thumbnails folder section, I noticed that some of the images are in the wrong position. Randomly, I could see no pattern why this images out of so many are wrongly shaped.

Those problem pictures are 90 degrees clockwise to the correct position.
They are horizontally down instead of vertically up if you get what I mean

using version 1.95.3

any ideas why?

You'll find some background info and hints in FAQ How to rotate images automatically.

thanks Clo for the info.

now everything work fine.

I have to admit, some of the technical details on options seem hard to understand for average users like me.

your thumbnails may be corrupt - I had this in some PS'ed pics
you can rebuild thumbnails from source and it works fine
