       jpegorient - change the orientations of JPEG images


       jpegorient { -90 | -180 | -270 | -v | -h } image-file ...


       This  is  a simple utility for changing the orientations of one or more
       JPEG images.  It is provided  as  part  of  the  image  conversion  and
       transformation plugins for Konqueror.

       A  single option must be passed before any filenames to specify how the
       orientations of the images are to be changed.  Each new image  will  be
       saved over the old one.

       This  utility makes use of, which is designed to work with
       certain types of digital camera image files.  Instead of modifying  the
       image  data,  it  alters the EXIF tags stored with the image to reflect
       the new orientation.  For this reason  only  images  with  the  correct
       types of EXIF tags can be changed using this tool.

       This utility is part of the official KDE add-ons module.


       -90    Rotate each image by 90 degrees clockwise.

       -180   Rotate each image by a half turn (i.e., 180 degrees).

       -270   Rotate  each  image  by  270 degrees clockwise (i.e., 90 degrees

       -v     Flip each image vertically.

       -h     Flip each image horizontally.
