JPEG Lossless Rotator
Have you ever thought that when you rotate a JPEG photo you lose its quality? All people usually make photos with different shot orientaton, and some photos need to be rotated. When you rotate a JPEG photo, most image editors decode the photo, rotate the bitmap and then reencode it back to JPEG. This process slightly decreases the final image quality. Unlike other tools, JPEG Lossless Rotator does not recode your image but will perform a special lossless block transformation. As a result, a rotated image has exactly the same quality as the original.
