Unnecessary automatic and incorrect image file rotation

  Sir Haller 22:20 06 Mar 2014


I have a beautiful program for viewing image files on my pc. The program is called "ACDSee" and is very convenient for quick view, zooming, and folder management. The problem is that some photo's imported from a camera or other source are of course sometimes at the wrong angle for viewing. Windows somehow seems to detect this and automatically rotate the picture in the "normal" Windows file explorer system. When I rotate the picture in ACDSee, Windows then inadvertently rotates the picture in the explorer pane from correct to incorrect angle! This makes it technically impossible to have the same picture at the correct viewing angle in both places (file location in Windows and in the ACDSee viewer) at the same time!

Is there anyway to override this stupid automatic function? As humans, we are supposed to be able to decide ourselves how to view image files, right?

Thanks, Thom
