Sometimes, I'm perfectly happy with the JPG generated by my Sony Alpha 6100, but want to rotate the image a bit in Lightroom. To not cause increased loss due to recompression, I would naturally prefer to apply the rotation on the RAW (*.arw) file. However, that would mean I now need to carefully re-construct the color balance, tone curves etc. to match the JPG, an issue that's also touched in this question.

Is there a way for Lightroom (or another app) to automatically glean the settings which Sony applied and use them as basis? Sort of the color equivalent of the Lightroom lens correction feature, which seems to take its info from such things as camera model, aperture etc., for great results. Thanks!

The only way (I know) to get close to the camera's JPEG is to use Imaging Edge Desktop from Sony itself.

Download software for your OS, install it, go to Edit, Adjusting Images, find Creative Style/Creative Look and there select the style you use in your camera when take photo(s).

For lens correction search for Lens Correction in the same place.
