    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 fucking 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" :eek:) 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....
