iPhone 4 Pictures Being Sent Sideways?

I have tested this now and it seems to do it every time.

When I send a picture to my email it also turns sideways even sending different sized images.

Also, when sending pictures messages my girlfriend confirmed the pictures are sideways every time. I also tried rotating the picture myself using Photogene but it is still being sent sideways.

iOS4 issue?

Do you have your screen rotation locked to portrait? Try unlocking it, taking the picture again, then sending it.

See what happens.

Yeah, it's happening to many people, there was a thread posted earlier today about this same issue, the thread is probably bumped down a few pages by now, but I'd venture to say it's happening to everyone..

Nope no lock.

I just sent another picture and she said it was straight, but this time I used the HD camera instead of the front facing VGA.

There might be an issue with the VGA camera.

Hmmm....

Well, if it's not something obvious, then it's probably a software bug. We'll probably have an update in a few weeks at the latest that will fix some of these early issues.

Can anyone test there VGA and HD cameras to see if BOTH send sideways?

Here's my experience:

HD Camera- Sends sideways to email, but is straight when using MMS

VGA- Have not tested email, but sends sideways through MMS.

Update: VGA is sending straight via email

I used the HD camera sent it to my gmail account, in the email the preview of the picture was straight. But when I clicked on "view" that's when it shifted sideways. If you click on "download" and download the photo it also comes out straight...

Same. I just sent another and when viewing the picture, it was in fact sideways.

Sideways Pictures

Hi, I took a bunch of photos with my iPhone 3G running iOS4 and subsequently posted them on my blog. When viewed on my iPhone 3G, my iPhone 4 and my iPad, they appear correctly oriented.

However, when viewed on a Mac or PC, on either Firefox or Safari, they are sideways.

FYI, when taking pics / videos it doesn't matter if orientation lock is on.
When you put it on it's side it will respond appropriately

I don't know what it could be. Submit feedback to apple

I believe I'm experiencing the same issue as the OP with my video.

Here's a test we did, let me know if its similar. Can't figure out why its being sent to YouTube like that.

This happened to me as well. I took pics of my 3G to sell online, and all the pictures came out sideways. You could just rotate them, but it's a hassle to have that extra step.

This happens to me too.

This is a stretch but has ANYONE tried restoring the iPhone4 to the ios4 thats on Apples website? Is it a possibility that the iOS4 that was put on the phone pre-shipping has some of these quirks (antenna, proximity etc)???? Its a crap shoot but just throwing it out there if someone is willing to try.

Being an early adopter of all the previous versions of the iPhone... So far the iPhone 4 seems to be extremely problematic...

I did a restore yesterday hoping it would fix my battery issue, pictures still are sideways.. not sure what's going on, but the joys of using the phone are beginning to turn sour..

Mine does it as well.
Does anyone know if a 3GS on 4.0 does this too?

We need to submit this to Apple.

I took two photos using my iPhone 4 of a 3GS that I am selling. I emailed them to my computer from my iPhone. One of them did this very same thing.

True that every OS version ever released has had some weird bug so this should be expected. I remember when photos saved from the net would be too grainy to even look at.
