    Unable to resize or rotate photo with Windows Photo Viewer on Windows XP

    Even though I have installed Windows Photo Viewer into my PC running on Windows XP, the application can’t resize or rotate the photos. I have saved the photos into ‘My Documents’ and ‘My Pictures’ folder. Still, the photos revert back to original size or position after using the photo viewer. What could be the reason for that?
