autorotate Module

The autorotate module allows a user to automatically rotate a photo item on upload based on it's EXIF data.


This module requires the EXIF module to be installed and activated.


It is recommended that you install the EXIF module first and for best results the ImageMagic toolkit be used.
This module may be downloaded from the gallery3-contrib GIT repository here.

To install, extract the "autorotate" folder from the zip file into your Gallery 3 modules folder. Log into your Gallery web site as an administrator and activate the module in the Admin -> Modules menu.

Known Issues

  • It appears that on some hosted accounts (hostgator is the only instance I have knowledge of now), the rotation of large images will fail. See this ticket and this post in the forums. If anyone has further insight, please update one of those two locations.
  • If you have issues and are using GD as the image toolkit try Image Magic as your default toolkit. ( Admin -> Settings -> Graphics )
