turn off auto rotate in photoshop?

  1. I won't go it no why I want to do this because it is a special circumstance, but is it possible to have photoshop and bridge ignore camera settings that cause the verticals to auto rotate when opened?
  2. With all of my cameras, it is a setting you change in the camera. We have to change it for tethered shooting versus in-studio shooting. Go through your menus and look for auto-rotate. If there is a way to change it in PS/Bridge, I've never done it, but again, the auto rotate has always been governed by the camera.
  3. I am dealing with some things I have no control over the camera because of getting stuff from other photographers.
  4. I can't find any reference in Photoshop CS2 or CS4 about adjusting to the auto rotate but as Jen indicates I suggest you turn off the auto rotate in the cameras you use.
    The only place that auto rotate is of any use is when you view the image in the back of the camera and because some computer programs use this tag and some don't it can be extremely annoying to find that when you view and possibly work on your image it can appear to rotate when you don't need it to.
    I have just read your reply above about having no control. Looks like you may have to work around this one.
  5. Use exiftool to remove (or reset) the orientation tag in the exif info on all images before you start working on them.
