    I dont want the files to waste a lot of space so i decided to resize them. For that i used the resize method from the "image" crate. Everything works fine, until i start to upload images above 5mb. Then the resize method starts to rotate the images. I think i narrowed it down to the resize function deleting any existing exif data inside the image file. That way the orientation flag is removed and the image is in its default position. I already tried to fix this, by saving the exif data before resizing and then rewriting it to the image file. The only library that i could find that supports writing (at least for png and jpeg) was this one: kamadax-exif. The problem is, that when i write the exif data (all the previous data or just the orientation data) the file gets corrupted. Now to my question: Can someone recommend a library that can resize images, that preserves the aspect ratio and does not delete the exif data? if not, does someone have an idea on how to resize the images differently? Or maybe there exists another exif data crate that i can use? I hope this question is understandable, thanks in advance :)
  • Announcing: ImageSieve, a tool to assist in sorting and archiving images and videos

    I absolutely loved all the crates available that made my life very simple in many cases. I used (among others) the slint ui framework, kamadak-exif, img_hash, fast_image_resize and rawloader.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing image-sieve and exif-rs you can also consider the following projects:

img-parts - Low level crate for reading and writing Jpeg, Png and RIFF image containers

fast_image_resize - Rust library for fast image resizing with using of SIMD instructions.

rawloader - rust library to extract the raw data and some metadata from digital camera images

rust-analyzer - A Rust compiler front-end for IDEs

img-hash - A Rust library for calculating perceptual hash values of images

cargo-ui - GUI for Cargo

annatar - The Lord of Gifs! ...Hahahaha shut up.

exiftool-rs - Image metadata scrubber written in Rust.

flutter_rust_bridge - Flutter/Dart <-> Rust binding generator, feature-rich, but seamless and simple.

slint - Slint is a declarative GUI toolkit to build native user interfaces for Rust, C++, or JavaScript apps.
