Hey, when you rotate pictures on a Sony camera the rotation is not kept when you transfer to the PC.

Now my question is, what software lets you rotate the image without losing quality? I normally just use Windows Picture and Fax Viewer to rotate the image. But this reduces the filesize whenever I rotate.

Thanks,
Cyril

What you are looking for are "JPEG Lossless Transformations."

XnView (freeware) does this: http://www.xnview.com/

Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.com) also does this, with the additional feature of batch operation on lots of images at the same time, using its 'thumbnails' facility.

I use both programs (and have tried lots of other jpeg manipulation programs), and they're excellent. If you do a search over the last couple of months in the 'photoediting software' forum here you'll find lots of alternative, and links to groups of jpeg experts.

Good luck,

Alan T

Yes, but do make sure this includes lossless jpeg rotations and that you've got the right images before you embark on a big batch. Both xnview and irfanview alter the original file and overwrite it and keep its name, so you need to back your files up elsewhere before the operation, if you're doing a batch.

That's if you let it. XnView is pretty good, just apply the filters you want, add the files you want to apply them too and click go
