Hi,I'm sorry about the issue. Please turn off camera, then remove the battery from it for a minute, then reinstall, then turn on and check.If that does not work, please go to Shooting mode 2 icon, then select the option Pic Orientation and set it to Off.Please click on the websites below for illustrations:http://i.imgur.com/uHWG4BE.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/gqKobtu.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/l39mhxQ.jpgAlso, here is the full manual for your camera; please check some more options in it as needed:http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/oima_cckb/SZ-11_Instruction_Manual_EN.pdfPlease let me know. Thank you.

This is great - did the pic orientation OFF for all new photos taken and they are now landscape. The photos on the camera already are still sideways however so I'm guessing there is no way of backtracking to change all your history back to landscape?

Great. You cannot rotate images on the camera, but you can transfer / import photos from the computer to your computer, then rotate on the computer.- For Windows computer:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/rotate-a-picture-using-windows-photo-viewerhttp://malektips.com/windows-7-rotate-photos-keyboard.html#.VeiYY_kWJpghttp://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/33648/windows-8-how-to-crop-or-rotate-images/- For Mac computer:http://www.howtogeek.com/201638/use-your-macs-preview-app-to-crop-resize-rotate-and-edit-images/http://www.imore.com/how-crop-and-straighten-photos-os-x If you need help with anything else, please come back any time.
