I agree .. up to a point.
My DSLR (Minolta 7Hi) is pretty sophisticated, but doesn't have
the mercury switch (?) that would let it record the EXIF orientation.
So any changes I make have to be done after the photo was taken.
Fair enough. That's a different matter. I'm talking about when
there's already an EXIF tag in the image; I don't want to lose that
