I love the intuitive nature of this plugin. I do have a couple of issues. the first time I used it I uploaded a couple of hundred images. Most loaded into the thumbnails and images as expected. A few loaded in a rotated position, some 90° counterclockwise and a few rotated 180°. When I checked the originals, they are all facing as expected. I uploaded the problem images again and they still rotated. How can I get these images to display correctly? Is there a way to return them to their appropriate position from within Joomla?
first of all, thank you for activating the Support subscription.
It's the first time that this issues was reported. Can you please send me link to a demo gallery where I can see the problem? If possible, could you please send me one of those images via email (see Contact for address) so that I can analyze it in my development environment?
I've just checked the gallery and the images. The images are displayed properly in your image program using the stored Orientation tag in the EXIF data.
But the image resizer function in SIGE does not use this information (just like the Joomla! Media Manager - see screenshot), thus those images are not aligned properly. On the following screenshot you will see the thumbnail from the image that I've uploaded directly via the Media Manager. It has the same incorrect orientation:
Open the image with an image program and create a copy of the original image (simply by saving it with a new name). The image should then be orientated properly in SIGE (or the Media Manager in general).
This issue can be solved automatically by reading the EXIF data in the thumbnail creation process. I will put it on my todo list.
I've answered your question regarding the image names in the JS view in the other thread!
