Check if a JPEG image has EXIF Orientation tag and rotate it if needed.

Description Description

As ImageMagick copies the EXIF data to the flipped/rotated image, proceed only if EXIF Orientation can be reset afterwards.

Return Return

(bool|WP_Error) True if the image was rotated. False if no EXIF data or if the image doesn't need rotation. WP_Error if error while rotating.
