    Truly unbelievable that Apple would create this problem and then not take the trouble to fix it. Makes me feel like an idiot for upgrading from a 3Gs, which worked perfectly, to a 4G which turns its photos on their side. I think it's funny that some of the posters in this thread are such diehard Apple koolaid driners that they maintain that this is not a problem created by Apple.

    I'm running many macs and am seeing this problem on mac mail and on facebook using the safari browser so this is clearly not consistent even with apple.

    The iphone should just rotate the picture instead of leaving it up to the exif data to correct it.
    it should be wysiwyg but instead, it's misleading.

    It has nothing to do with being a 'kool-aid' drinker and everything to do with being a software engineer for 25 years. I know where the fault lies and it is not with Apple.

    Hi all:

    After doing a little research on this problem, which I never had with the 3 G, there are basically two solutions. 1.) Take all pics holding the camera in landscape mode with the home button to the right. Putting the home button to the left will turn the pic upside down. 2) This one I like better. Download from Itunes an app called BEST CAMERA for $2.99. So, I downloaded it, took a pic in portrait mode on my iphone 4, from this app, and wow, the pic sent to my aol address was perfect as well as the pic to my Facebook page. Thanks to the person from another site who recommended the download of Best Camera. So, I am not going to worry about it anymore. Technically, it has something to do with the orientation of the picture, but I will leave that to others to decipher how it all works. So, for now, I am a happy camper.

    Another workaround for iPhone users with Macs:

    http://murphymac.com/iphone-photo-rotation-part-two/

    You email the photo to your Mac and it automatically rotates the photo in a browser friendly (non-exif) manner and emails the result back to you. You send THAT photo from your phone.

    If Apple is going to use an exif tag to rotate photos sent from the iPhone then Apple's Safari on the Mac should recognize the tag and rotate the photo properly when people are using web-based mail applications to view the photos. Mail and Preview recognize the tag, why shouldn't Safari?

    portrait mode picture exif before ios4
    ExifImageWidth - 600
    ExifImageHeight - 800
    --> height > with : that's all right
    No orientation data

    portrait mode picture exif after ios4 and after ios 4.0.2
    Orientation - Right top
    ExifImageWidth - 640
    ExifImageHeight - 480
    --> height < width : how could this be right in portrait mode ????

    Is it really hard for apple to correct that bug ???

    (by the way i'm not anymore able to send a picture at 800 X 600 pixels and for me it's a regression)
