I am beyond frustrated about this subject... I hope I am not alone-- and I hope even more that someone knows how to fix this!
19 out of 20 pictures I take on my SGS2 are in portrait orientation (vertical). When I try to send them (text or facebook), every single messaging service turns them landscape (horizontal). Which means, my friends friends ar receiving sideways pictures.
If I use a different camera app, the message will send in the correct orientation but the quality in every other app I have tried is just not as good as the built-in app. I have tried at LEAST 6-- the quality just isn't right.
The only other option is to edit/crop every single picture after I take it (which then saves a duplicate) and THEN send it-- adding a couple minutes to every picture I want to send.
