    Unable to change the Orientation of pictures in windows photo viewer

    I have iPhone 4S which has many pictures yesterday I transferred some pictures to my windows 7 laptop. When I tried to change the orientation of these pictures, a message flashes which says "Windows Photo Viewer can't save the changes to this picture because there's a problem with the picture's file properties.". What should I do to fix this error?

    Hiiiiii
    you will face problems with JPEG and TIFF picture files that include the EXIF picture orientation property are rotated during import in Windows photo viewer
    in Windows 7.
    You need to install other photo viewing software for exmple picasa photo viewer and it is the best software for viewing photos and it has additional features ,you can download it from filehippo,etc,
    Thank You

    Hi there,
    This a tiny problem which can be solved easily but takes time.
    First go to the image properties in Windows then Under General Unblock the Image properties. But the problem here is that you have to do it to each and every image one by one. After that you will be able to change the orientation of the images.

    Regards.

    dear friend,

    It is not the error associated with windows photo viewer-this is the error of the picture files of which you want to change the orientation.

    Possibly the files has been corrupted which you've transferred in your computer through iPhone 4S.

    Seems like the transferring process was not proper.

    If you have copies in your
    iPhone 4S then transfer it again to your computer properly & then try to open it with windows photo viewer.

    If it doesn't work then you can download any third party photo viewer software like Picasa.

    Click on the following link to download Picasa.

    If no software can orient your file then sorry to say , your files has been permanently corrupted.

    hii

    I would like to tell you that the error you are getting while you try to edit the photos in your pc transferred from your iphone is a metadata error which can be solved by using some default keys and photo editing software for the editing purpose...
    You can use paint as the default photo editing software and your photos open with windows photo viewer as you open them .. When you right click your photo and click edit it open up in paint and then hereafter you can edit the photos ...

    Some of the things which you can do with your photos are :

    # CTRL + S - Save the program
    # Close paint
    # Rotate picture clockwise (CW) and counter clockwise (CCW)
    # Rotate pictures by using arrow buttons in picture viewer

    Hope i helped..

    thanks

    Solution of this problem:-
    Open the image with Microsoft Paint. Save the image again as a .JPG file by choosing*File > Save As…
    You may then edit the new .JPG file normally.
    And also some third-party photo-management software for Windows may be able to rotate and edit these photos without errors.
