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.
