For Christmas, I bought my wife a new digital camera - one which knows
which way up it is, and records appropriate EXIF information in the
I know that Vista knows about the tag, because if I add it as a column
in Explorer, it comes up appropriately.
I know that the file contains the necessary information, because if I
show a slide show on my Wii, all the pictures come up appropriately.
Unfortunately, in Media Center and Photo Gallery, the tag is ignored,
and the pictures always come up as landscape.
I don't believe this tag is incredibly new, but it *is* incredibly
useful - manually rotating all the pictures is a drag when the camera
is able to note the correct orientation to start with.
So, what's the story here? Is there a flag I can enable somewhere to
make Vista actually *use* the tag when it displays the photo? If not,
is there anything in the pipeline to improve matters?
