FRV 1.2.0 EXIF rotate data ignored for ext JPEG


FRV 1.2.0 Build 719 (x64-OpenGL) ignores EXIF rotation data for the associated external JPEG. Also, the key sequence to ingore the rotation data, Ctrl-8 or Ctrl-Up, has no effect on either the raw display or the external JPEG. Both the raw and the internal JPEG are displayed with the recorded EXIF rotation. OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
Tested using DirectX 9 and 11 as well; they behave the same as described above.

Yes, external JPEG rotation is assumed to be same as in RAW and embedded JPEG (there are several , such as Mamiya ZD, these exclusions are handled separately, per-camera).

If your camera produce different orientation of RAW and external JPEG, could you please provide sample? (upload it to Dropbox/Google drive/any other file sharing service and send link to

Rotation data is ignored (and rotation is set to rotation of previous file seen) only if you do not have XMP data (with already recorder rotation). If XMP already recorded, rotation data to be read from sidecar file.

Hmm, the camera does not produce a different orientation; viewing these files with Windows and Windows Photo Viewer has them in the correct orientation, as does DxO Optics Pro and Lightroom. I will send links to the files if you want to see them.
The files will tell you the camera, but just in case: Canon 70D.
