2024-03-01-16-23-12.tzlog (970.5 KB)

  1. Open .arw file
  2. crop and then rotate the image
  3. save image

resulting image goes from a vertical crop window to a horizontal crop window, therefore cutting off the top and bottom of the image, and the image is skewed Everything works fine if the image is not rotated when cropped.

Cropped image that is not rotated during crop:

Same image but rotated during cropping. On screen the person is upright with shoulders level:

I just uploaded the original raw file, an unrotated cropped jpg, a rotated cropped jpg, and screenshots of rotation and export panels. Let me know if there is something else that would be helpful.
