Last night I took few pictures for my sisters birthday and after I was done I sent it to her email account, once she open the file all the picture were upside-down. I just wanna know if it's an iPhone issue if anybody as ever had this problem and how to I fix it if it's on my side. All the pictures were taking in landscape mode.

To ensure right-side up pictures, always make sure your home button is on the right when taking pictures.

In my album they look right it's when I emailed them that I had the pictures upside-down and I noticed that I had the home button on the left when I took the pics so I thought that's what it was but wasn't sure. LON is yours an iPhone4?

Yes iPhone 4. Though I didn't open email on PC. I know if I take movies in portrait Windows Media Player shows them 90° off while Quick Time will adjust them.

That's a little odd isn't it? It's funny that's what I thought right away ( iPhone vs pc that's the problem ) I'm glad I'm not the only one I just looked stupid cause I wanted to take the pictures only to be laughed at 5 minutes later haha thanks for the help guys

I've found that if you take photos with Camera+ and save to Camera Roll, it solves the problem.

It takes a couple seconds on a 4S to save a photo, I imagine Camera+ rotates the photo according to the EXIF data instead of solely relying upon it.
