The site I am working on allows users to post things up for sale. In the form for creating their post, there is a simple file upload field. The problem is that sometimes when users upload images they end up rotated and they have no way of choosing.

I have put together a php script that will handle the image rotation. I am looking to put together an HTML5 file uploader which I can upload the image on the fly and then send that image to my php script through ajax.

Am I going about this all wrong? If not, is there a plugin for this already or anyone out there that has done something similar?

Before all of that, I would recommend trying Image Rotation Repair plugin.
