Yes. Just a note about this: If you upload files via FTP, you will need to login to panel and click "save" (anywhere) after upload, to make sure X3 pages are refreshed.

Do you have a reference example? The problem here is that X3 will fix rotation ON UPLOAD (from the X3 panel), something that will not happen if you upload from FTP. The issue is because some devices (especially older ones), do not physically rotate images to the correct rotation when they are taken ... Instead, they store the rotation in the images EXIF data. In turn, this EXIF data is used in most desktop apps, and ALSO in browsers, to correct rotation when viewing the image directly (direct link to JPG). However, when an image is EMBEDDED into a website, exif-rotation is NOT taken into consideration, and the image will display at it's physical rotation. Therefore, they only way to correct images that have their rotation stored in EXIF, is to actually physically rotate the image on upload. X3 has two options for this in the control panel [see screenshot]
, but both rely on uploading the images directly from the control panel.
I think your only practical option would to use a command-line tool directly on server, and set it to search and autorotate all images which have the rotation tag stored in EXIF. Some references:
https://superuser.com/questions/670818/ ... -exif-data
https://www.slimjet.com/jpeg-rotate/aut ... ctures.php
Or, I assume there are plenty of desktop apps which can do the same, eg. rotate all images based on it's rotation meta data. That would require to have all images locally, and locate an app that can batch rotate all images in a structure of folders. The above options are probably faster and more legit.
I would of course make some tests first in a single file to 1. make sure it rotates incorrectly rotated images, and 2. doesn't touch correctly rotated images. It should be obvious, but you don't wanna run it on 20k images without being 100% sure.

Maybe I overlooked something.
Yes. Settings > Toolbar > Disable it!
