Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: f-spot

If you try to export a file to a folder using the Folder Export Plugin,
and choose to resize it to something larger than the original, it seems
to work fine, but when you go to open it, it is the same size as it was

This might be the expected behaviour (as in the resize is presumably
designed to create thumbnails, and making it larger than the original
would degrade the quality of the photo) but it IS a little counter

Anyway, the real problem for me was that in the case where you choose a
larger size than the original AND to rotate it, it fails at both

I know that example is silly (why would you want to make it bigger?),
but this might come up if you are exporting a bunch of photos of an
event, and one happens to be taken from a mobile phone. You choose to
resize and rotate them all to 750px to send them in an email. It would
tell you everything went well, but if the photo from the mobile phone
was less than 750px to begin with, then it will still be at original
size and will NOT be rotated. All the other ones rotate & resize fine.

I guess I would like to have the photo rotate whether or not it is
resized successfully.

Cheers :D
