Rotating iOs images (recently fails more often)

Post by Mma71 »

I have an imagemagick job that rotates images and recently I have seen an increase in failed rotations.

The increase seem to only affect images coming from iOs devices.

The code hasn't changed, so I'm thinking maybe a recent iOs update had changed something.

Anyone with similar trouble?
Any ideas?

Check the image's meta data and see if there is an EXIF orientation flag. If so, add -auto-orient to your ImageMagick command line.

See ... uto-orient
