how to batch rotate images (using orientation info)

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by George Schroder, Oct 3, 2004.

  1. I am looking to find a way in Photoshop (or another app that you might
    recommend) to use the "orientation" data embedded in an image to
    automatically rotate and save images in their 'proper' orientation. My
    Canon Powershot embeds the 'orientation' data into the pic -- and
    Photoshop seems to be able to read it just fine and auto-rotate the
    images for viewing in the Browser. But can I get it to automatically
    rotate and save the files?

    I know how to rotate and save an _individual_ image file. That is
    pretty simple. The issue that I am trying to solve is that I generally
    import 80-100 pics from my camera at one time... and they will be a mix
    of landscape and portrait orientations. I would like to find a way to
    set up an automated 'batch' function to look through the pics... rotate
    the ones that need to be rotated +/- 90 degrees... and then save them.

    Any wisdom that you might have to share would be greatly appreciated.
