Fix for wrong rotation of RAW images
Review Request #122873 - Created March 9, 2015 and discarded
Displaying of RAW images in gwenview was broken by https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-37946. I am fixing (or rather workarounding it) by blocking EXIF rotation iff the loaded image is RAW.
Tested with various RAW files, used previously to test the RAW loading support itself & with some jpeg files (including https://github.com/recurser/exif-orientation-examples.git).
Nevertheless, the fix is not complete as jpeg files extracted from the RAWs using 'dcraw -e' are still mis-rotated.
In that bug report that you linked to there's a commit fixing it which is in 5.4 which is out.
It also says:
if an application is handling the rotation itself right now the image will be rotated twice.
This seems like it would be a bad idea to merge this then?
