You are apparently using Gallery.

Try clicking Gallery.
Select picture.
Select Menu | Edit
Make the change
Save
This saves a copy that you can rename.

I could not duplicate your error.

As I said I could not reproduce your error.

I ALWAYS transfer images to my workstation, use PSP (Paint Shop Pro) to manipulate them, and then transfer them back.

If you send me one of the images that is a problem for you I will try it on PSP when I get back latter today.
