Problem with vertical photos

Post by artsi »

XnViewMP 1.3.0 appimage on debian 11 bullseye

I was going through some old files, categorizing them and I noticed that the vertical images are not rotated the right way".

and

It's not for all of the vertical images and I could do i manually but it would be very painful, too many of them.

Is there a way of have XnViewMP display the thumbnail, proper side up?

Thanks

Where would this come from?

With the same camera, I have plenty of images that are "properly" verticals (portrait) taken on the same day, at the same event (the 2010 winter olympics).

Thanks for taking the time.
