    Aarg, the problem is, these photos are owned by other people (like I
    said, I'm doing this as a service), and as you can guess, the terms of
    service prevent us from distributing their photos to third parties.

    Hmm, I'll google around and try to find some utility that manually sets
    the "rotate" flag in jpg, and try to create one of my one. (You could
    look for one too. )

    Is this flag in the image data, or metadata?

    It's originally in the EXIF metadata, but Photoshop probably has a
    separate flag in its own metadata, which are not part of the image
    file. I'm guessing this because Photoshop ignores the rotation flag
    in the Kodak RAW files that I use.

  4. I'm not sure about the rotate flag, but maybe you can use jhead for
    related work. I find jhead to be a very effective EXIF/JPEG-tool
    for some actions:

    Things jhead can modify in an exif jpeg file
    - Up-right images according to rotation tag using jpegtran
    - Set or relative adjust internal exif timestamps
    - Re-name or date stamp fils according to exif timestamp
    - Transfer exif headers between images
    - Edit jpeg comments
    - Delete exif or comment sections from jpeg images

    Free, and for most platforms (Win, OS X, Linux etc.)

    Photoshop needs to get a preference for this problem

    This is a Photoshop problem. there should be a way to activate or not.

    When I open the image I shot with my camera angled I get the auto rotation feature in photoShop; AND for those insisting that photoshop is not to blame for this:
    I even get the * after the name. this ' * ' means that the image has under taking some change. -----AUTO ROTATION---- because photoshop is picking on the camera saving some metadata in with the file...

    Now, when is the update coming or where is the preference to activate or deactivate this behavior?
    these are the questions.

    PS. I hope anyone can help
