Exiftran is a command line utility to transform digital camera jpeg images. It can do
lossless rotations like jpegtran(1), but unlike jpegtran(1) it cares about the EXIF data:
It can rotate images automatically by checking the exif orientation tag; it updates the
exif informations if needed (image dimension, orientation); it also rotates the exif
thumbnail. It can process multiple images at once.


-a Automatic (using exif orientation tag).

-9 Rotate by 90 degrees clockwise.

-1 Rotate by 180 degrees clockwise.

-2 Rotate by 270 degrees clockwise.

-f Mirror image vertically (top / bottom).

-F Mirror image horizontally (left to right).

-t Transpose (across UL-to-LR corner).

-T Transverse (across UR-to-LL corner).

-nt Don't transform exif thumbnail.

-ni Don't transform jpeg image. You might need this or the -nt option to fixup things
in case you transformed the image with some utility which ignores the exif
thumbnail. Just generating a new thumbnail with -g is another way to fix it.

-no Don't update the orientation tag. By default exiftran sets the orientation to "1"
(no transformation needed) to avoid other exif-aware applications try to rotate the
already-rotated image again.

-np Don't pare lost edges. By default exiftran don't preserve image size of the images
that do not meet a multiple of 8 pixels. He prefers to cut a strip of a few pixels
rather than offering a damaged image. Use this option if you want them all the


-h Print a short help text.

-d Dump exif data for the file(s).

-c text
Set jpeg comment tag to text.

-g (re)generate exif thumbnail.

-o file
Specify output file. Only one input file is allowed in this mode.

-i Enable in-place editing of the images. Exiftran allows multiple input files then.
You must specify either this option or a output file with -o for all operations
which modify the image (i.e. everything but -d right now).

-b Create a backup file when doing in-place editing (imply -i).

-p Preserve timestamps (atime + mtime) when doing in-place editing (imply -i).


Autorotate all jpeg files in the current directory:

exiftran -ai *.jpeg
