    Hello,
    Does anyone know a way to change the orientation of images on Facebook? Whenever I take a photo in portrait mode on my Storm and upload to Facebook, it always ends up displaying horizontal. And, though the Facebook app and the mobile version of Facebook, I don't see any option to rotate the image. I end up having to go onto a desktop computer and rotate it.
    Thanks,
    Kristin.

    It's a bug with the phone. Only workarounds are to take pics in landscape mode, or use a PC to rotate them once uploaded (to facebook, flickr, twitpic, etc.).

    Official every month or so, unofficial updates seem to be every few weeks.

    You can rotate the picture from the storm. Go to Media> Pictures> All Pictures> then click the picture you want to rotate. Now tap the screen to make the picture tool bar show appear at the bottom of the screen. Click the third button to rotate the picture 90 degrees. Finally press the BB key and click Send To Facebook.

    Yea, that rotates on the Storm, but it's still wrong once you send to Facebook (no matter what I do, photos always come to Facebook horizontal).
