Rotate Image Service menu

This is a feature which I long thought was missing in KDE, so I looked into it and its actually really easy to implement!

Extract this file into ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus (at least in RH8 thats where it goes), and you will be able to simply right click on a jpeg file in Konqueror to *losslessly* rotate it clockwise, or counter-clockwise. This can be useful if you have taken pictures with a digital camera both in a landscape and portrait orientation, and would like to rotate them for proper viewing on screen.

This requires the jpegtran program, which is normally part of the libjpeg package.

Mozilla will try to display the gzipped text file directly so just click on the link and save the file as rotateImage.desktop and put it in ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus .

 Doesn't refresh

 by wjarosz on: Apr 9 2003

For some reason the konqueror thumbnail view doesn't always refresh after doing this, so it may require an explicit F5 to show up (though the actual file is already rotate, the preview simply isn't synced up). Does anyone know how to fix this? Is there a way (maybe using DCOP) to make konqueror refresh the view?

Also, as a side note, does anyway know how to force a refresh of thumbnails by konqueror? I've run into the problem, if I overwrite one image with another, that the thumbnail of the image doesn't change (it continues to show the old image, which could be completely different).

Its the Bluecurve style, and the font is the default font for RH8, Luxi Sans.

This is very cool! It works under SuSE 8.2 (also using ~./kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/rotateImage.desktop) like a charm.

I didn't have a problem with the thumbnail refreshing, I am using Konqueror 3.1.3 from KDE 3.1.3.

Thanx again,

Works well - KDE3.2.2 Fedora Core 2. No refresh problem here either. Only point is there was no servicemenu directory, created one myself and it's all hunky-dory.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
