Well, if it's buggy it should be fixed because the code is used in
places as well, for example when creating a web album.

Of course! I just meant that extra complexity brings extra bugs.

In fact we could even add a tool to apply the embedded orientation to
the selected images.

I think adding a physical-orientation extension would be great.

If the physical-orientation function was removed from the importer (and
replaced with a separate tool), and the "overwrite existing files"
checkbox was replaced with a popup (when existing files are detected),
then the "preferences" dialog could be a true "destination" dialog,
without other functions.

Just an idea. It's not a critical issue.

It's a good idea, thanks.

Personally I find it useful (not to say mandatory) to physically rotate
the images at import time.
As another example my digital frame doesn't support orientation tag.

True that if you remove it from the import dialog, it should appear
somewhere else
so the user can apply it afterwards.

I remember at some point in 2.10.x, Mike had the idea to allow some
to hook scripts/tools as import post process.
That would be great to have and would satisfy most needs.
Personally I need to rotate and rename my pictures at import time.

My 2 cents.
