I wasn't talking about that possibility, but the rotation that can be done via 
e. g. Gwenview. Sure, you can rotate the images in KPA, but they will be only 
displayed correctly in KPA then. I want them to be rotated correctly for all 
programs, so I prefer the EXIF way.

A quite nice way to geotag photos for me was the gpssync dialog from KIPI. But 
this one seems to have quite some problems (at least here) with KF5. I also 
used gpsprune, which worked as well.

Cheers, Tobias
