It seems there is an issue with OS4 displaying the photos improperly when transferred or emailed. Still photos won't display properly when taken in portrait (upright). They look and display properly on the iphone itself, but not when emailed to someone. They display rotated (sideways). See for yourself

    My daughter sent me some by email, iPh4 to iPh4. There were 4 and the last two came thru upside down.

    On my MacBook they looked normal. We've not been able to duplicate this.

    I took a photo then sent it to my email account. Shows fine via the iphone but when viewed through outlook it is not right side up..Looks like another software glitch of some sort.

    I have this with screen snaps on the iphone4. They are 90 degrees out when snapped in landscape mode. Same problem on my ipad.

    I took four pictures, one from each of the four rotations of the phone, and emailed them to my gmail account.

    In the phone, they all displayed upright.

    In gmail in IE, they all displayed upright.

    In Outlook, only the pic taken with the phone rotated 90 degrees counter clockwise was upright. The other pictures were displayed with varying rotations.

    I think it's an issue with the mail client.

    My hunch is that the new step of asking if you want the photo to be small, medium, large, or original size is somehow the culprit.

    I can't prove it, but I'd bet money on it!
