Portrait Orrientation photos display correctly in PhotoShop Elements Organizer.
However, frequenlty when I use the Slide Show Editor to transfer a Slide Show to Premiere Elements, the Portrait Photos end up on their side.
If PhotoShop Elements knows which photos are in Portrate Orientation, why can't Premiere Elements also know this?
My Work Around is to Edit the Protrait Orientation Photos and transfer the edited version to Premiere Elements within the Slide Show. I believe this nealy always works. However, it is a pain if the photos do not need an edit prior to being shown in a Slide Show DVD.
I do not use PSE's Organizer, but if it works like Adobe Bridge (a powerful "organizer" with Photoshop, and many other Adobe "pro" programs), then what is happening, is that the actual Image is NOT being Rotated, just metadata on how to display that Image is. In Bridge, one must Rotate, and then Save the Image to get the actual Rotation of the pixels.
Now, in PrE, one could adjust the Fixed Effect>Rotation, in one Image. Then, the user would Rt-click on that Image, and choose Copy. Next, Select all Images, that need Rotation, and again Rt-click on those, choosing Paste Attributes.
Personally, I like doing operations, like Scale and Rotation in my image-editing program, Photoshop, as its algorithms are better, IMHO.
