My inventory application contains image controls that populate from cell references to locally stored image files. Unfortunately, LO doesn’t seem to use the exif data to rotate the image properly. Are there any work arounds available to solve this. I have written python code to change the files duplicating them with the specified rotation. But, every time the user adds a picture, a separate program has to be run in order to revise the view.
On a side note, I tried using the SystemShellExecute to use the default system picture viewer, but after shelling out twice the dialog freezes. This happens on Windows 8.1 and XP. Windows 10 seems to work OK. Again unfortunately my users are on XP and 8.1.
Any thoughts on either of the above would be greatly appreciated.
