ShowFoto 2.6.0 and DigiKam 2.6.0 both seem to have a bug that rotates some, but not all, images in the thumbnails panels. If the thumbnail of an image file is rotated in ShowFoto, the thumbnail of same image file is also rotated in DigiKam, so the same bug seems to affect both applications. However, the thumbnails in Dolphin and Imagination are not affected. Also, all images are in their proper orientations in the main window of ShowFoto -- only thumbnails panel is affected.
Is there a configuration file or files for ShowFoto and DigiKam that can be modified?
I figured out how to fix this. Installed exiv2 and exiftran packages. Then I ran this command on the affected image files:
Code: Select all
exiftran -a filename.jpg -o newfile.jpg
This "synchronized" the thumbnail image with the image in the ShowFoto main window. Then I rotated the image in the ShowFoto main window to the proper orientation and saved the file. Now all is good. ShowFoto and DigiKam thumbnails match the thumbnails in Dolphin and Imagination, along with the main panel of ShowFoto.
