    Hi Kenny,

    You need to remove the EXIF information stored in the JPG file. One quick methot that avoids the MC "false" rotation is to open the image in an image editor and using "Save As.." make sure to uncheck the option to save the EXIF information with the new JPG file. After this all images can be opened in MC without rotation issues.

    Image editor like Photoshop?

    Hi Kenny,

    I don't use any Adobe products, but I'm sure that Photoshop offers the option to remove EXIF information when saving a copy of an image containing it. I do know that both GIMP and IfranView have the option, and they are both free. The whole process takes only a few moments in either software. If you need any tips feel free to ask here.

    Something I also still see a lot of is stretched/squished imported images.   If you go to settings>import>image> [image size adjustemt].  Select which preset works for you. If it is not a rotation and just a raster size that is your problem.

    This is a shortcoming in Frameflex. As was mentioned, open and resave in pretty much any app (on a Mac, Preview will do it) and they'll look correct. What is very annoying is that the Avid Pan&Zoom effect will interpret such files correctly when Frameflex does not. Investigate, please! And the scale parameters in Frameflex run out of scale if you apply a rotation :-(.
