Photo Orientation Overview

Most new digital cameras store information about the photo in 'metadata' tags within each photo. One of these metatags contain the photo's orientation information.

PhotoSurfer uses this information to display your photos in the correct orientation. If your photos don't display with the correct orientation then it's likely the camera that took the photo doesn't store this type of data. How to see the photo's metadata:
  1. Select a photo (picture)
  2. Select the 'Info' icon in the main toolbar.  (left side of toolbar)            Info icon

So if your photos aren't displaying with the correct orientation then you can correct them by following the methods described above.

Note: Uploaded photos to Facebook or Flickr will display with the same orientation as seen in PhotoSurfer.
