           Summary: I'd like to rotate only the thumbnail of an image (and
                    not allow rotate raw image)
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Albums GUI
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: simon margo student utwente nl

Version:           Revision: 603502 (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources
Compiler:          gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20060901 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-13) 
OS:                Linux

I've seen quite a few bugreports (like 131603 or 127577) for thumbnails and rotation and not showing correctly, this is more of a suggestion to fix things manually sort of...

Some of the thumbnails of raw images (CRW) are showing up rotated 180 deg. I'm not sure if it's the orientation of the camera or some other factor, but it's very odd. I'd like to be able to rotate the thumbnail to show up right.
Strangely, opening the image in the editor gives me a right side up version of the image and also the whitebalance and gamma is immediately adjusted, I'm not sure if that's something I did or the default setting (could be more clear)

Finally, isn't it strange to modify the raw image at all? I see it as the negative in a film camera, so you don't change that in any way. I wouldn't offer the rotate image option in the right-mouse-menu with raw images, but instead allow the thumbnail to be rotated.

I'll attach a fragment of my album window to show the problem.
