I keep trying to insert a picture into a field and Filemaker rotates it sideways. It's saved upright in Preview and I cannot figure out what is making it flip. Help!
Software can open an image, rotate it, mark it as rotated, display it as rotated, but not change the actual image.
Open the image in a web browser, using the Open File option, this will show the true status of the image.
Thank you for your response. I opened it in the web browser as you suggested and the image is upright. When I try to insert it into a field in Filemaker, it turns it sideways. Any thoughts as to why?
FileMaker 12 (including 12.0v3) is ignoring the "Camera Rotation" EXIF tag. This appears to be a BUG in FileMaker's handling of at least JPG images and possibly other types.
One workaround on a Mac is to open the original image in Preview then do a "Select All" and a "Copy". Then select under the File menu "New from Clipboard". Save the new image and import that instead.
