    I have a picture which I took from the camera in portrait mode and uploaded from the Camera Roll to my Pictures folder on my Mac. Now, when displaying it, the iPhone mysteriously rotates it 90 degrees counter clockwise and only shows it in this view by default. When I turn the phone in a landscape position, the picture also rotates into a portrait mode. This is not how it should be. What should I do?

    P.S.: First Gen iPhone using 2.0

    Likely, the image has been rotated 90° on your Mac, then sent back to your iPhone - which will through the rotation off on the phone. Did you edit the image in iPhoto at all? Rotate the image and resync.

    No, the image wasn't rotated when it was on the Mac. I just moved it to another folder within Pictures and resynced it and it came out rotated. I even tried rotating the actual picture using Preview, saving it and resyncing a copy of it, and the newly rotated picture still shows up in a 90 degree counterclockwise rotation.
