    Photoshop CS is doing something VERY ANNOYING. When I open a photo
    that's sideways, it somehow detects that and rotates it automatically
    when it opens. I HATE THAT!! How do I make it stop, it's not in the
    prefs?

  2. Photoshop doesn't do that. What probably happens is that your camera has
    an auto rotate function, but the preview is not updated yet.

    No, it's definately photoshop doing it. If I look at the image in a
    web browser (ie 6), it's rotated left like it should be. If I open it
    in photoshop, it's straight.

  4. That simply means that Photoshop DOES honor the auto-rotate from the
    camera and the web browser does not. There is no way Photoshop can know
    that an image is straight or sideways. To Photoshop it's just a bunch of
    pixels, nothing more. You can blame Photoshop as much as you want, but
    Photoshop does NOT have such a function.

    Look. I opened one jpg file and photoshop rotated it. Since then,
    I've saved other images from web pages overwriting that same file,
    using the same name, and when I open them in photoshop, they're all
    rotating. Why? Because photoshop somewhere saved some information on
    that file (by file I mean the file's path and name), saying that it
    must be rotated.

    Not only does IE not rotate it, but neither does 3d studio, acdsee,
    firefox, or opera.

    PHOTOSHOP ROTATES THE IMAGES.

  7. Look. Like I said before, Photoshop doesn't know what an image is. It's
    just a bunch of pixels. However, if you opened an image that was tagged
    by a camera for auto-rotation, Photoshop may obey such a tag and rotate
    it. If you then save another image with the same name, in the same path,
    Photoshop may still have those rotation settings and rotate that image
    as well. That's possible and understandable.

    Open an image and save it under ANOTHER name in ANOTHER path. Does
    Photoshop rotate this one too? If it does, you have a very special
    version of Photoshop indeed...

    So answer my damn question! How do I make photoshop stop rotating
    images????

    How do I make it "forget".

    How do I make it open images the same way every other image
    editing/viewing program on my PC does??

    How do i make it open images the same way photoshop 5 does?

    He already as. Your camera obviously adds an automatic rotation flag.
    Now, either you can turn that flag off in your camera and you won't
    get autorotation, or you can stick to PS 5 which doesn't recognise the
    flag. Your choice.

    No, you're not listening. Photoshop may pay attention to the flag when
    the file is first opened, but if I overwrite that jpg with another
    file- NOT a photo, which does not have an autorotation flag, photoshop
    still rotates it. How do I make photoshop "forget"? That question
    hasn't been answered.

    Open Photoshop's file browser. Select (do not open) the image(s) in
    question. Click on the rotate buttons until rotated the way you want.

    That only changes the way PS previews it. You have to hit Edit - Apply
    Rotation to make it happen. (Thanks to the chap who reminded me of this just
    two days ago.)

    ASO you have a file named x.jpg. And you overwrite with y.jpg as x.jpg
    thereby destroying the contents of x.jpg. And the point of doing this
    is?

    The point of doing this is that I'm processing a mass of images, 3000,
    by hand, each downloaded from a web browser. I can use photoshops
    macros to have it "revert", or "close" then "open", the same file. If
    I save every file under a different name, then I can't use the macro,
    and have to manually open 3000 times.

    Certainly sounds like an "I don't care about copyright" thing.

    NO it is not an "I dont care about copyright thing" either damnit. I
    run a website that processes digital photos for people.

    Can you post one of the images that always auto-rotates, please? (If you
    already have, I appologize). If I find it autorotating on my system, then
    I'm sure I will have the same problem one day. Let's get to the bottom of
    this.

    Thanks,
    John
