[Digikam-users] How to Rotate Image?

I've got a similar (?) issue with a lot of images from an old camera: 
They appear to be turned 90 degrees (to the left or the right, that 
varies) which is no surprise as the old camera probably never wrote the 
orientation information.

When I use gwenview or digikam to rotate such an image, the update of 
the thumbnails is usually done very late or not at all. Additionally 
(and much worse), these pictures are rotated 180 degrees and I have to 
rotate them back once to have everything as expected. (On the second 
rotation, it is done as expected only a 90 degree rotation. I have never 
checked the exif information but will do so when I return to my computer 
in a few days.
