WordPress.com has rolled out some new updates on their blogging platform. These updates are related to image uploads.
The service would now detect the orientation of the uploaded image from the EXIF information to rotate it appropriately. The company said that this change would be lossless though JPEG files might lose some quality.
Users can also now sort images in galleries based on two new options: Image Date/Time and Upload Order. These options are also available on existing galleries in user accounts.
The company admitted that these features depend upon the EXIF information on the photos taken by compatible cameras so make sure that the data is not removed before uploading the photos to your account.
