Ah, yes, the KDE documentation is misleading, see:-
it says "you can right-click on the thumbnail and select
Auto-rotate/flip according to EXIF orientation."

It would actually be easier if one could do it with a right-click.

Aha! :-)  Exactly what I want, I had looked down into the "Batch Queue
Manager" but hadn't realise that I needed to double-click on "Rotate"
to get the relevant options.

Thanks very much!
