ZommBrowser Ex auto-rotation issue

Duuno why, When downloading images from the camera, the software
automatically rotates some images. The bad part of it is that the original
unrotated image is left as well.
Tried to set the "rotate original" but still happens.
Also it looks like it rotates again allready download images.. looks like it
has a ****ing database where it stores some info and then works on
it........or it simply scans the exif header looking for some attributes and
the rotates.....
Any way to simply disable this stupid feature?

Thanks

It will help if you specify your camera.

I don't know what camera you are using, but many of the newer ones have a
lanscape/portrait sensor in them that is added to the EXIF data. I believe
the default settings for ZB response to this data by rotating the frame
"appropriately" ) Take a look at the EXIF data and see if those data are
correct - you may have a bad sensor in the camera.

Canon Powershot G3.

That's the case. The exif header contains orientation info retained even
after rotation.
That's what I do:
- shoot
- download with zoombrowserex
- rotate manually with acdsee.

Now, next time I open ZooombrowserEx, it rotates back the images to the Exif
info, still stored in the image!!!
I'm not definitely sure, but almost. Otherwise I couldn't explain how
manually rotated images, suddenly rotate back (or duplicates of the same
unrotated image are created)....

Same here.

Are you sure they're actually being readjusted and that it's not just
the ZB failing to update it's thumbnails? Mine does that sometimes.
Quite annoying.

Try deleting the ZbThumbnail.info file in the images' folder and see
if it'll sort itself out when it creates a new one.

Ahh an RTM issue. There are settings under in ZB under Tools>Preferences>
Rotation. If you have the latest version of ZoomBrowser and the manual it's
documented on Page 109. You have the option to auto-rotate or not and wether
or not to do it to the original or create a copy. It's just doing what the
settings tell it to.

You can get the latest version of Zoombrowser and the manual here:

Isn't there any option to complitely disable rotation?
Otherwise the only option to avoid this crappy beheaviour is to select
another download directory to avoid ZBE to re-rotate older images....
