Description Ute Hauth 2010-10-10 19:47:52 UTC
Version:           1.0
OS:                Linux

The slideshow works fine if one uses only pictures in landscape-mode, but all pictures which are portrait-mode will be shown also in landscape.

It did work in former versions unfortunately it does not work now. It seems, that the exif-version will not be used from the picture.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Just use pictures which are not in landscape and you will see the bug.

Actual Results:  
Pictures are all shown in landscape no matter what their actual direction is.

Expected Results:  
rotate the picture according to the exif information of the picture.

OS: Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.32-25-generic
Compiler: cc

This has also been fixed in our 4.5 branch, see

so all distributions will have the fix in KDE 4.5.2.

Best regards!
