(Mac) Photo orientation issue with Topaz Labs plugin

Recommended Posts

I have set up Affinity photo (purchased on the Mac app store) to use Topaz Labs Sharpen AI as a plugin. It seems to work fine apart from ...

I was testing it with a jpeg from 2011 taken with an iphone 4.

If I open it with Affinity Photo it displays correctly. If I open it with Sharpen AI it displays correctly. Apple preview displays it correctly. Apple Photos displays it correctly and if I use it to open the pic in Sharpen AI it also displays correctly.

If I open it in Affinity and then use Sharpen as a plugin it displays upside down!

The EXIF orientation data says it is rotated 180 but all 4 programs seem to ignore this when opening the file directly. However the orientation is followed when sharpen is used as an affinity plugin and there is no way to override this to display the image correctly.

At this point it is a finger pointing exercise and may even be an old Apple bug but I will pose the same question to Topaz Labs.

(I find the 180 rotation difficult to believe as it implies I held the phone upside down, but there it is.)

If you can provide a sample image to use, I'll check to see if we have any Topaz plugins to test with but it may be something out of our hands. Can you also confirm the version of Topaz Labs plugins you use.
