    When taking a screen shot/capture in landscape mode I notice when saved to the camera roll it saves in portrait view. So the photo is sideways. And the camera roll doesn't have an option to rotate the photo, which it totally should! Anyone else having this issue. My fiancé does so I assume it's a design flaw in the iOS.

    Anyone with the same issue?

    It isn't a flaw it's a feature! :)

    Anyway I use Photoshop Express to get around it here.

    It's pretty embarrassing that Apple can't seem to fix this issue.

    I don't think we should have to use an app to fix apple's problem.

    The screenshot function needs to save EXIF data to the photo indicating it's a rotated pic, but the Photo Library doesn't yet support EXIF data. Probably why Apple haven't fixed it yet is because a big update to the Photos app, possibly with EXIF data, is coming in iOS 5. An impending update to the Photos app would also explain why they have ignored fixing the iPad 2's relatively jerkier Photo library scrolling for the time being.

    I'm not sure that's the problem as I'm sure that I've imported rotated pictures from my camera and they've shown up fine on my iPad.

    Any apps that will simply browse and rotate existing screenshots in the library?

    Photoshop express is a long process...
    Find and load a single photo,
    Rotate it , save
    Then it makes a new copy,
    then we have to waste more time deleting the original
    Then finding and loading another...

    I'd like to just browse photos and hit rotate as needed...

    Well that would be perfect but it does not have it...
    any apps have such a simple function to just browse and rotate the original ?
