Picture turning 90degrees

  Daiol 20:11 02 Jan 2010

Hi,I use windows xp pro sp3.When i download photos from my camera to a certain folder in my picture folder,Some of the photos have been taken that need to be turned 90degree left or right.
Now in the past couple of weeks the images take a long time to turn,they used to be rather quick but now they take longer is that a fault in the folder or what?.Can someone please help me here as it can be fustrating if i want to turn quite a lot.

Usually, turning pic which are on your hard drive, as in My Pictures they turn q

Hmm, I wasn't finished, dunno what happened there ....

anyway, q .... quite quickly, but if on a CD or DVD they normally take rather longer.

I am not sure, but I think it sometimes depends on the picture format - .jpg, bmp etc, with jpg's normally quicker to turn.

As it appears to have only started slowing down recently, perhaps a good de-frag and clearing of Temp files might help.
