Just recently purchased a new laptop that has windows 8 and it's definitely a bit of a learning curve, lol. Anyway, my issue is this: I am an amateur photographer and am used to using the windows photo viewer as my first line of defense to checking out my pictures. Previously, on windows 7, I would open the card, cut the pictures from my memory card and paste them into the folder that I wanted. From there, I would open a picture and scroll through them, rotating them so they're all in the correct alignment.
I recently took some pictures and loaded them to the new laptop and I noticed that it automatically rotated them for me (or so I thought). Which, in a perfect world would be great. However, I logged onto yahoo messenger and went to do a photo share with a friend and when I brought up the pictures, via yahoo, the ones that I took as a "portrait" were rotated to be landscape (which made viewing the pictures awkward). When you look at the pictures in the master folder (and in photo viewer), they all appear to be turned the correct way but when I go to share them, they're not.
Does anyone know where the problem is? Is it a new feature from windows 8? Do I need to change some setting? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thank you for your time
