What application can rotate a TIFF without re-encoding it?
Answer: It has to do with the encoding (commonly RLE) and the assumed orientation of the image (row-oriented vs column oriented). Switching orientation is generally done by re-encoding the image, which often increases the size (Preview also adds an alpha channel). However there's a flag in the EXIF metadata that allows rotation without re-encoding. Photography Stack Exchange, 2016-05-28
