Retouching in Photoshop

To retouch images, we go to Poses Mode, select the image and click on the Paint Brush. After finishing the retouching we saved the image and minimized Photoshop. When the image retouched became visible again in TS it had rotated to the right 90 degrees. What could be causing this?

    Another excellent question adscdma.!

    It's the exif data in the jpeg. When you opened the image in Photoshop the exif rotation information was read and Photoshop rotated the image for you.

    When you now go back to Timestone the preview image is refreshed (essentially it re-imports it) and imports the rotated image. But you had probably already rotated the preview in Timestone so you get rotation applied to rotation.

    I have not found a way to turn off Photoshop automatically rotating the images (reading the exif). It's annoying that it does this without warning and without a way of disabling it.

    You may ask why we don't read the exif rotation information. It's because the exif standard doesn't apply below previews of a certain size. When we did have it enabled people had all sorts of problems because of this depending on what preview size they had set. The safest and most consistent thing to do was switch it off.
