As mentioned in the README[1], imagemagick is required to auto-rotate image previews (for images that have rotation information in their EXIF data). The relevant code can be found in[2].

I've tested this (using kitty to preview images) and can confirm it's indeed needed.
I therefore think it should be added as optional dependency to the package.
