    A number of times I've emailed a photo I've taken with my iPad2 and the recipient of the email tells me that the photo arrived upside down. I've looked at the sent mail and it looks fine.
    Thanks for any help.

    You can download photo pad app, turn the image upside down and email it to your friend, although it sounds like the problem is on the other end.

    Take your photos with the home button either on the bottom, or to your right. The iPad tags a picture's orientation in a way that not all computers and/or programs understand. While the iPad will know it took that photo upside down, and correct, the other end may not be able to.

    That's how I took the pictures that arrived upside down. I had the home button on the bottom. I sent the email with the photo to two addresses. One arrived correctly, the other upside down.

    I think it's just a random quirk. I've goofed around with my camera and had 2 out of about 14 emailed pics flip like that, for no reason.

    I experienced the same with photos arriving upside down etc.
    Going further, I had occasions that trying to paste screenshots taken on my iPad2 into other apps (i.e. contacts) appear turned by 90 degree.
    I have the impression that this is related to the orientation lock which I use by hardware-slider - unfortunately I never have the time to really check that (I always just retake the screenshot and repaste in that case) but maybe anybody else has experienced it?

    Screenshots are always portrait, no matter how you hold the iPad.

    I took six movies, one after the other, at a meeting and tho they play fine for me, my friends with a PC find them all upside down. How can I tell them how to rotate them and how can I avoid this in the future??

    If the movies were upside down - why not try to hold the iPad the other way around?
    On which side was the home button? Suggest you test both sides and send the test to Windows colleagues and ask them which arrived "correctly".
    Lease don't forget to report afterwards ;o)

    Some great ideas!!

    I ran the tests as suggested. All computers can play them right side up IF I shoot the movies with the home button on my right. Then I tried loading Quick Time on the PC's and found that with that software, it will play right side up no matter how I shoot them. It is just Windows Media Player that plays them upside down if I shoot the .MOV with the home button on the left. Problem solved!!! I did not want to abandon these movies because they cannot be re-shot; they were at a one time event. Now with Quick Time, all is good. I figure someone out there will point me to a free or low-cost editor so I can flip the videos shot incorrectly and re-save them. If anyone knows of software like this, please do tell!!

    No problem. I keep PS Express on the iPad just for screenshot fixing. It's free and it will do basic things like rotate and crop images.

    Hmm, try using the Export feature of QuickTime to save them again. Save As would only change the file name, but the Export will recode the movie, and might fix the problem. Hopefully the PC version of QuickTime does have Export. You'll find it under the File menu if it is there.

    iPad movies upside down on windows computers

    Ok I have the same problem. I have 10 iPad movies of my mother. She died recently and my dad wants them. Problem is, the movies play upside down on my dad's windows computer. On everyone's mac they play rightside up. I understand that QuickTimes have hidden data that describes things like location and... orientation? So macs can access this data and correct it, but windows is clueless. This creates another problem, because I can't tell on my computer which, or if all of them, are upside down, or even if I have corrected them. They can be flipped in QuickTime 7 pro easily enough, but trying to do that I'm working blind. Plus to ME it looks upside down! ARRG!
    I need a way to be sure an windws computer will see it the same way I see it. Expor to AVI?
    Any ideas?

    You should not have to actually flip them on the Mac. Just export (not save) them again, try a different format if .mov doesn't do the job. Do one, then try it out and see what happens.

    I have synced photos on my pc to my iPad, and they are arriving with a different orientation from the way they appear on my pc. How do I fix this?

    I've never heard of that one. What program are you using to view them on the PC? Do they show up with the right orientation on the PC if they are viewed in a different app?

    That's all I can think of.

    They are in the correct orientation in my pictures, and they are correct orientation in Microsoft Office Picture. I also use PMB
