Another brilliant addon, and so needed! Just remember to fully reload the page after rotating! (shift + R on Mac).
Our members upload a huge number of photos to the forum and this little addon comes in handy when photos are taken in different orientations and you can quicly fix them on the forum, nice little addon :)
Our users love this one; they post lots of phone photos which are often rotated and can't otherwise be fixed.
