Image rotation...

Offline
#1 latsap
Hi all,

We recently had a camera hanging from a ceiling pointing straight down. It ran over 5 days and I have approximately 4000 photographs.

Unfortunately, they are coming to LR in varied rotations....

Is there a quick way to get them all to the same rotation?

Has anyone come across this before?

Thanks very much.

Cheers

HI Andrew, it depends on if and how the camera writes the image orientation.
Check out the LRTimelapse Table, on the very right you might see one or two columns with values for orientation. See if they are different, if so, you can right click on the table header and "fill down" the column, to equilize them. Save and reload metadata in LIghtroom.
If you don't see such orientation columns most likely the values in them are equal and the columns are hidden (you can check via "Show all columns" toggle button on the top left of the table.)
Another way might be to user Lightroom filters. You can add a filter to the metadata section, and choose "aspect ratio / portrait" and then rotate only those images. Remember to clear the filter after that, then save metadata for the whole sequence, and reload metadata in LRTimelapse.
