I must have a setting worng or something. When I open an image right from the camera it should display it in photoshop 90 degs out. But for some reason photoshop is displaying the image as if it was rotated already. I can take the same image and open it in another edit program and it stays 90degs out like it should. Any idea what would cause this ?

Is your camera set to "auto-rotate"?

You have a camera which has a sensor so that when you rotate for verticals, an orientation tag is embedded in the image's EXIF data. This feature is most useful for direct printing to printers, not for editing.


Photoshop (in my case, CS) reads the EXIF data, understands this tag, and auto-rotates the image in the editor. Which is dandy for PS CS itself. But when saved as a smaller file, say for web use, it isn't rotated. Yet PS CS always shows that it IS rotated. And if rotated again in PS CS, it's now normal for web, but 90 degrees out in PS CS! Confusing, isn't it?


The solution? Depends on the camera. If your camera allows for it, make sure the "orientation" feature on your camera is turned OFF. Now my camera, an Olympus E300, always records the orientation, and my orientation ON-OFF function simply controls the viewing of the image on the rear LCD (!). And since Photoshop CS has no ability to ignore the orientation tag, rotating's can be a real pain. I'm currently using Exifer as a batch ability to simply strip away the EXIF data before I begin the editing process (from copies of the originals, just to be safe).


Hope this helps...


David

Happens with my Canon 20D all the time and, as noted, has to do with the auto rotate being on.

The fix I use it open the folder containing the images in Photoshop's browser. The verticals will have a tiny icon at bottom of each thumbnail image that indicated the auto rotation. Select all the verticals (either with the hold down Ctrl key and mouse click method or adjusting the sort view to height priority first and then hightlighting the images). Once they are selected, right click and choose Apply Rotation. Takes a minute or two, but now all images won't continue to rotate each time there are opened in PS.

While cutting off the auto rotation will correct it -- you still will have to go and manually rotate the verticals anyway. So it's a six or one half dozen of the other deals.

Good luck with it!

Dave

Huh? Photoshop has a browser??? I never knew that!


Just tried it, same file size, so indeed all it's doing is changing the orientation tag back to Normal. Just eliminated a step. Thanks!!

Glad to be of help! It was an easy solution for me anyway, since I'd encountered it myself a couple of years ago ... lol ... so definitely happy to pass it along.

Thanks everyone that auto rotate was the problem. I just don't know how it got turned on. This has been a hell of a week.
