About building a photo rotating app

It’s funny how building a small app can be so exciting, sort of. —

Sort of? Well, it’s not like rotating JPEG photos is going to save anyone’s world. It’s the sort of project that will save you from a frustration. A big or small, depending on the volume of your photos.

What it is for me though, is a means to keep learning, to stay motivated to build something. To learn about the various facets of design.

I just had a coffee with a friend who works in digital marketing. He gave me some tips on how to “lure” users into signing up for an e-mail list.

The advice seemed slimy to me. Yet, I don’t want to work on this for free forever. So I want to find some kind of a middle way. Show you how easy the app could make things for you.

So I’m giving you the new GUI app for free, like I’ve done for the past 13 years. In addition, I’m offering things like rotate preview and manual rotation for the price of a cup of coffee.

The Pro version is intended for, umh, professionals. Photo studios who shoot LOTS of photos and need to make the process fluent. So you can just pick a folder and be done with it: Anything you drop in the folder just gets fixed for you. No questions asked.
