Thanks for the replies. I decided to do some experiments on some  
unimportant images and the results are not what I expected.

The Image -> Rotate command reduces the file size. I tried on several pics  
with the same result. To give one example; a jpeg 2848x2136 pixels, size  
of file before rotate was 1.6MB (1,628,958), after rotating 1.5MB  
(1,562,298), pixel size remains the same.

In the lossless jpeg kipi plugin help file it says the file size should be  
bigger. Why is the file smaller if the tranformation is lossless.

The correct by altering exif data seemed to work fine.
