JPEG Lossless Rotator

CNET Editors' review

Digital camera owners typically use image-editing software to rotate their JPEGs for proper display. Unfortunately, many image editors are "lossy," which means they decode and recode JPEG files as they are rotated, with a slight but inevitable loss of image quality. JPEG Lossless Rotator is a small, simple, yet effective bit of freeware that will rotate your JPEGs without decoding them, preserving the image quality, or, if the image can't be rotated without losing some pixels, it will ask you if you still want to rotate the image and tell you what it costs in pixels. JPEG Lossless Rotator uses a special block transformation to enable lossless image rotation. It also performs batch rotations and displays EXIF data.

JPEG Lossless Rotator is small and very easy to use, as is befitting a program designed to do pretty much one thing very well. The interface is clean and sparse, with a few basic icons and search and browse features. Selecting a folder generates thumbnails in the main window. You simply highlight a thumbnail and either right-click to display your image rotation options or use the controls on the toolbar to rotate your image right, left, or 180 degrees.

JPEG Lossless Rotator is a worthy bit of freeware and a sure keeper if you take a lot of digital pictures and care about the quality of the images you capture and save. The maker recommends testing the program out on a few unneeded files first, since apparently there are a few camera models that aren't compatible with it.

    "Beware downloading this! CNET infects PC with adware!"

    March 30, 2013  |   By DisgruntledAdwareHater

    Version: JPEG Lossless Rotator 9.1

    Pros

    The Lossless Rotator software is fine.

    However, I used the CNET downloader and it sneakily downloaded horrible adware to my PC. Within moments, my social networking sites had been hijacked by flashing adverts and popups. My search engine was hijacked too.

    Cons

    Watch out for unsolicited rubbish like "Free Play" games and "PricePeep" shopping toolbars. Not to mention shocking adverts popping up all over your browser and social media pages.

    I will never download from CNET again.

    Summary

    If CNET delete my review, it simply proves my point.
