My wife took these pictures with her cellphone:
Curiously when viewed at with firefox they are sideways
but when downloaded and viewed with Eye of Gnome image viewer ( eog )
they are right side up.
My guess is that the camera tags them (stored in the jpeg file) with
the orientation of the phone when taken and eog uses this to orient
them properly but firefox does not.
Can anyone confirm? I looked on the eog help site and found a question
that may be related:
but the answers did not lend much clarity.
Is it possible to edit/rotate the image and save it, say with gimp,
but leave the flag untouched (now wrong) which would account for the
problems in the question above.
