Auto Rotate Images

If you want to do more than just a clockwise or counter-clockwise turn when it comes to rotating images, reaConverter's Auto Rotate feature is what you are looking for. This advanced feature not only allows you to change an image from a portrait to a landscape position, but also to deskew an image with text and to rotate using EXIF information. Not to mention it's really easy and fast to operate!

An additional option lets you rotate the image using the EXIF (Exchangeable Image File Format) orientation information embedded in the image file.
