    Hi all,

    I am having a problem getting the iphone to show images properly after they've been synched to the mac, and then back to the iphone.

    Here are the steps I'm taking:

    1. I took several photos with the iphone, both in landscape and portrait mode.
    2. I connected my iphone to the macbook pro to sync
    3. I used Image Capture on the mbp to grab the photos off of the iphone (and automatically deleting them from the iphone).
    4. I review the pictures, and move the ones I want to save on the iphone into a separate folder.
    5. I tell iTunes to sync photos to the iPhone from the folder just specified.
    6. I view the photos on the iphone and they're oriented incorrectly. All of them appear to be off by 90 degrees counter-clockwise.

    Has anyone else seen this problem before? I'd like to get it solved, preferably in an automated fashion. :) (though I suppose I can open photoshop or some other tool and manually rotate them -- would that solve the problem?)

    thanks for any suggestions you can give!

    I have this problem too but only with a few, seemingly random photos. I sync my photos through Photoshop Elements. Sometimes it does it with photos taken with my iphone and some with my digital camera.

    The only solution I have found was to download an app called 'Crop for Free'. It has an option to rotate a photo. It will then place it in your camera roll as if it were a new photo. Then I delete the old photo in Photoshop and resync the new one.
