Support Pics always load or send in landscape even if they are supposed to be in portrait is there a fix?

    I've had my Captivate since day one and i love it the only thing that bugs me is that if i have a pic taking portrait anytime i send it or upload to facebook it automatically changes it to landscape view and the same when recieving pics i go in and manually edit the pics so when i go to my gallery it shows them in portrait but anytime i try and send it never fails goes straight back to lanscap anyone else have this prob?

    I'm almost certain that this is an android OS issue.

    I think it's Facebook not honoring the embedded orientation info, which the phone does. I've noticed this too.

    I've used the free app "Reduce Photo Size" which has a rotate function in it to save a new forced-rotated version to then upload to Facebook when it's giving me grief.
