    So was/is this an Apple issue or a Microsoft issue?

    It's a Windows issue. Honest. Windows doesn't play nice with the orientation tag (sorry, I can't remember which tag it is right now).

    If you don't take phots with the volume buttons facing up on the iPhone then windows shows them upside down. The two fixes are 1) take pictures with the volume buttons facing up. 2) download software on your pc for your picture library. I got Picasa and it works pretty well. Now I try to make sure I take pics with the phone in the correct orientation and they show up fine in windows.

    I believe it's (or at least was) actually the opposite of that--buttons down. Unless it got fixed in Windows too.

    Exactly. This is so annoying. Especially when shooting videos.

    Irfanview handles photos ok. For videos I have to use QuickTime player.

    Not Apple's problem. Microsoft ignores metadata and renders seemingly randomly.

    You’re right, my bad. Its buttons on the bottom. I've gotten used to it now so I it’s become a habit and I don't even think about it. But yeah I haven’t noticed any problems since using it buttons down.

    Just like MS to be counter-intuitive! :rolleyes:

    So did it get fixed?

    I remember that being a windows 8 fix.
