    Hi, I take pictures with my GN2 in portrait mode, but when I email the images and open on my PC at work they are rotated 90 degrees. They are fine when open on my iMac or iPad. Open on other PC's with XP or Win7 also rotate. When emailed from my other Android phone (Moto Admiral) the pictures are fine. My wife and a friend say pictures are fine on their PC's. My boss says pictures from his S3 are rotated too. Any idea if there is a setting to change to correct this? I can't pinpoint what may be causing this.

    It is the program on the PC that doesn't read EXIF orientation info on the picture. The stock Windows Explorer doesn't read it, unless you have some special version of it. You can use Windows Live Photo Gallery or some other program to view them. Be aware that if you rotate the photo using Windows Explorer, you may lose the orientation info on the picture.
