1.9 GB of new photos

Today I sorted the photos that stacked up over the last years. Just deleting the unworthy ones and rotating the portrait images took 4 hours and left 1.9 GB of images in 1600 files which will show up in the photo gallery within the next days

Thanks to a quickly done kde servicemenu entries executing jpegtran for lossless JPEG rotation in the image context menu of Konqueror it was quite a pleasure. It is as simple as creating a ~/kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/rotateL.desktop with the content:

[Desktop Entry]

[Desktop Action rotateL]
Name=Rotate to the left (counter clockwise)
Exec=jpegtran -rotate 270 -outfile "%u" "%u"

Maybe something like this (including the variant for 90 degree) should be shipped with KDE by default ,-) Anyway it reminds me I should add support for lessless rotation to ExactImage.
