Description of problem:
I cannot seem to rotate images with uppercase extentions. i.e. can
rotate 'image.jpg' but not 'image.JPG'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open gthumb
2. try to rotate 'image.JPG'
3. image.JPG still same orientation
Actual Results: Image remains the same.
Expected Results: The desired transformation is applied to the image.
Perhaps a tolower is needed? Or is this the correct behaviour? I
would not have thought so.
Yes, it seems that gthumb is simply not identifying the pictures as
jpeg images. Workaround: In Edit>Preferences, on the "Browser" tab,
check the checkbox "Determine image type from content (slower)"; after
doing this rotating images works (at least with jpeg files from my
digital camera; haven't tried any other file types).
Of course it's not correct behavior; pleas don't ask for an
"unbreak-me" option, this should just be fixed. :) It's actually
really annoying since the default for importing images from digital
cameras is often to use uppercase filenames since they typically use
This is fixed in RAWHIDE soon to become Fedora Core 3.
