NAME

        orient.py - change the orientation of a digital camera image file
 

SYNOPSIS

        orient.py image-file
        orient.py [1-8] image-file
 

DESCRIPTION

        This is a small script for changing the orientation of certain types of
        digital camera image files.  The image data is not modified, but rather
        the EXIF tags stored with the image are altered to reflect the new ori‐
        entation.  For this reason only images with the correct types  of  EXIF
        tags can be changed using this script.
 
        When  called  with with a numeric argument from 1 to 8, the orientation
        will be changed as described in the options section below.  When called
        with  only  a  filename, the current orientation will be written to the
        console (also as a number from 1 to 8).
 
        If the image contains no EXIF information or if the EXIF information is
        not  of  the  correct  type, an error will be displayed and this script
        will exit immediately.
 
        This script is provided with the image  conversion  and  transformation
        plugins   for   Konqueror.   For  a  more  general-purpose  JPEG  rota‐
        tion/reflection tool, see jpegorient(1) which is also a  part  of  this
        same set of plugins.
 
        This utility is part of the official KDE add-ons module.
 

OPTIONS

        The possible orientations are represented by the numbers 1 to 8 as fol‐
