Hello Débordé,

I moved your post about image orientation to a new topic, as it didn't "fit" in with PhD Suggestions.

When you take a photo "sideways", most modern cameras have a rotation sensor which stores an orientation flag in the EXIF data. This information shows software (like PhD) how the photo should be displayed. That's why your "sideways" pictures are displayed in PhD with the correct orientation.

Some photo display software will read & interpret that data correctly, while others either ignore it or "strip" it (i.e. remove it from the EXIF data). This applies to Windows Explorer & different websites.

Here, Windows 7 doesn't use the orientation flag for JPGs, but it does for RAW images (in my case .CR2). However, once I export the photo from PhD Windows 7 (Explorer) displays it correctly.

If your photos are not displaying correctly when you email them, it's possible (depending on what other software was used) that the orientation flag has been removed.
