Image rotation from iOS source

Not a problem unique to MindManager I get the same issues in WordPress. An image is the correct way up in File Explorer but when you use Insert Image to create a Topic Image the image is rotated 90 or 180 degs. Its due to the displaying application interpreting or not the rotation metadata in the image file.

Rotating in File Explorer before inserting may work.
Editing and saving the image may work.
Taking a screenshot of the image and pasting does work. May also reduce the image size stored in the MindManager file.

Does anyone have better solutions?
It would be good to have an image rotater within MindManager.

Yes this is a particular issue with iOS images and I haven't found any solution other than the ones you suggest, except for a variation on your last option - using the Windows snipping tool or SnagIt to capture the image, then editing it before pasting back into MM (or elsewhere).

I certainly second your suggestion that MM have some form of image rotation but I think this should be part of a basic picture editor - I'd like to add the ability to crop images as well.

I regularly use the Windows Snip tool.  For those that haven't found hit the Windows button and type snip. If it doesn't appear you may have to enable it in Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On and Off. In Windows 10 there is no option, its enabled.
