    Lossless cropping and rotation of JPEGs

    I want to do lossless cropping and rotation of JPEGs with a graphical editor. What do people use for this? gThumb seems to do lossless rotation, but it requires like 6 clicks per image. Are there any better solutions that also do lossless cropping? The jpegtran library can do it. Do any GUI apps use this library? I want to be able to throw away the edges of images so they don't take up space on my drive, without worrying about it degrading their quality.

    This list might help:

    So I guess no such tool exists?

    Here I ride in with a partial answer only 4 years later:
