Picasa keeps updating thumbnails
Once you have established that your camera is NOT writing the orientation tag, you can safely rotate the pictures in your preferred photo software.If the software is current, it should add the proper orientation tag to the metadata and you won't need to worry about the picture displaying sideways if you edit in another (current) program later or if you post the photos online.
(Microsoft's free Windows Live Photo Gallery does this.) This will ensure that programs which do use the orientation tag will display the image properly, as well as those that do not utilize the orientation tag.Capture videos and even zoom in and out on your subjects while recording, just like a real video camera!* Camera Zoom (Up to 6X digital zoom)Now zoom in on subjects to get that close-up shot.If you have a Mac, then Photos or i Photo will allow you to edit the image. For example, Photoshop's Transform menu item Edit Transform allows you to rotate or flip the image.Just be aware that flipping an image containing words may cause the text to appear backward.
