    I would try rebooting the phone, Usually that does the trick!

    I have the same problem OP. It was working fine but this morning it stopped rotating in gallery when I tilt the phone. Tilt still works when taking a picture and everywhere else.

    If I manually rotate the image it fills the screen but scrolling is then top to bottom and I have to manually do it for each image, plus when transferring to desktop images are sideways.

    Update* I fixed it. I had screen rotation turned on in the deep settings menu, but that quick bar settings you see when you swipe down, rotation was turned off there. The funny thing is that rotation still worked in most places, just not in gallery and web browser.

    It turns out that with the Australian version S4 this feature has been turned off intentionally because of the Apple law suit. I have checked with 3 others of my friends and all the same, cannot rotate picture gallery but everywhere else you can. Also for those interested the Australian version does not allow you to move the home icons at the bottom of the Page they are locked . I have installed a launcher to overcome this.

    Also if you are using the app profile scheduler you need to go into each profile and make sure "auto rotation" is set to on.
