Hello community,


I have the problem, that portrait photos will be imported in iPhoto in the landscape mode.

My system is 10.8.2 and iPhoto ’08 (version 7.1.5).

The photos will be imported from a Pentax k-x, but the problem still exists, when they will be imported from the Finder.


In any other applications (for example Finder, Preview, Quicklook, Safari, GraphicConverter, Photoshop Elements) the pictures will be shown in the correct orientation.


Things I’ve tried:


- New user

- Rebuild/repair the library

- Deleted the com.apple.iPhoto.plist


If I open the picture in Preview and save it without changes, the picture will be imported correctly!

Any ideas to solve the problem, so that the import will be work correctly again?


Thanks in advance and best regards

iPhoto '08, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
