What is it?
This mod will attempt to rotate jpeg images being uploaded that contain an orientation tag, so that the uploaded image is right side up without an orientation tag. Some cameras and phones generate images that are sideways or upside down, and contain a tag with the correct orientation. Unfortunately, some browsers don't look for the tag when displaying the image. Also, if vbulletin has to resize the image or create a thumbnail image, the resulting image will not contain the orientation tag. This mod tries to rotate the image so that it will appear upright in all browsers and image sizes.

Note that this happens at the time that an image is uploaded, so this mod will not affect any existing images.

THIS MOD REQUIRES ImageMagick. You do not have to be using ImageMagick for other image processing, but the binaries must be installed on your server. Sorry, this won't work with GD and I won't be making a version that does, because I tried it before and it's too slow to be useful.

1) Import the product XML file from the Product Manager.

2) Go to Settings > Options > Auto-Orient Images to enable the mod.

3) If you don't have an ImageMagick binary path entered under Image Settings, then you must enter one in the options. If you don't know what to enter, your host may be able to help. If you don't have ImageMagick available, this mod will not work.

New to Vbulletin

I am new to VBulletin even though my forum has been around for a while, I have only owned it for a few months. I am fairly confident in my abilities and have been able to install some plugins and fix some user issues. However, the newest problem is images being posted to the forum are loading in sideways. I have done everything I can think of. Today I found this thread and installed the .xml to the Forum. However, for the life of me I cannot figure out how to install imagemagick. I have been working on it for hours with no success. I am using a Macbook Pro, I have Go Daddy as my host, my Server is Cpanel and I use Cyberduck for my FTP items. I have tried to find instructions and have found some, but none of them are detailed enough for a newer person to be able to run the scripts and install the imagemagick files into vbulletin.

Does anybody have more detailed instructions or an easier way to get imagemagick working on my server so users pictures will load properly. Or does anybody know of another plugin that would work better.

Thank you.

This is not working on my forum. ImageMagick is installed and I asked the host about the path, but it still does not work.

I'm running 4.2.5.
Here is what the host sent me:
/usr/bin/convert --version
Version: ImageMagick 6.7.2-7 2017-03-22 Q16
Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2011 ImageMagick Studio LLC
Features: OpenMP

The path to ImageMagick's most popular binary 'convert' is: /usr/bin/convert
I put in /usr/bin/convert into the pathway and its not working. Anyone have any ideas, or did I do something wrong?

Thanks, that worked a bit better. Its posting just fine in the forum area but I still get upside down photos in the gallery I'm using. I'll have to see if the developer of the gallery has any info on how to fix it. Thanks again.
