Hi Howard,

I hope https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Rotation will answer your questions.

I've noticed recently a number of images that require rotation, usually photos that are in landscape orientation when they should be in portrait. What's weird is that in the articles, MediaWiki already "knows" the correct orientation and in some cases the file history even shows multiple uploads. It's hard to explain in words so here's an example:


This image has been in the article since September 2006 so I can't imagine that nobody has noticed the wrong orientation for 5 years. Does anyone know what happened here? Is this related to the huge backlog for RotateBot?
