...and thanks for a great prog!

I really it, it's really powerful.
I found it after I searched for some prog that would allow me to set image orientation the way I want it so I came across this prog.
I got myself an iPhone recently and it really sets orientation (rotation) of photos to Rotate 90° which is a pain when displayed under Windows OS.
Took me a while to find a prob cos some pics definitely didn't look right - all portrait photos thumbs were rotated -90° and when I open them in IrfanView they are "normal" i.e. Portrait 0° orientation. So I found out that iPhone sets exif orientation of all pics/photos to 90°.

So far I use ExifOrientation command via ExifTool direct works like charm to get those photos displayed the way they show in Windows 7 thumbnails.
Works in batches too. Great stuff! 8)

Great, glad it was helpful! :)

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).
