It appears that the flip and rotate transforms are not considered edits. Thus if I apply these transforms I have no indication that this transform has been applied. I performed some flip transforms on some images but not on others so now I have no way of reverting them all back to their original state. I've been scanning slides and the images require a flip horizontal transform. I would like to select all and tell Lightroom to review the transform back to the original setting. I have not figured out how to do this. Please help.
Yeah, it's a little strange that you can't reset flip and rotate. Possible solutions:
- Use the Data Explorer or Any Filter plugins to find all pics that are rotated 90, then unrotate them. Then find all pics that are rotated 90 and flipped -- unrotated and unflip them. Repeat for all 8 possibilities of rotation and flipping.
- Use the free Exiftool. Select all the photos and do Metadata > Save Metadata To File. Then do "exiftool -orientation=normal *" to reset the rotation and flipping of all the files. Then do Metadata > Read Metadata From File. Exiftool has a steep learning curve, especially if you're not experienced with command-line tools.
