Photo image self-orientation in DVD Architect was created by Scarface

I have used one of my own photos for a button icon. Mostly, this works as DVD-A intends. But one image, in landscape format JPG, is getting turned through 90 degrees. I have tried everything to find a way to correct or avoid this, and spent hours without success. I can't find any 'rotate' setting accessible in DVD-A (the Photo Compilation rotation is not accessible here). I have tried saving a tilted image, hoping to 'fool' DVD-A, and even that doesn't work. Can anyone advise, please?

If this image came from a mobile phone, that is the most likely cause of the problem.
Some images created with phones, can have the metadata tags that do not read correctly in video editing programs or DVD Architect.

Buttons in a DVD Architect project are very small elements.
I would never just add a full sized image as a button.

Use an image editor like Photoshop first and save a smaller version of your image file first.
All you should have to do is re-save the image with Photoshop and then the tags from original source will be removed.
Now it should display correctly in DVDA.
Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.
Unplugging is the best way to find solutions to your problems.
Peace :)

Hi Dr. Zen,
That worked a treat, very many thanks. Oddly, the photo which first hit this problem was from a scanned print. Others used from this source have worked fine, but another arose over the weekend (which I will now tackle as you suggest). Thanks also for creating your superb website. Far from the least benefit, it is helping me realise that I am not the only person who is struggling up the learning curve of DVDA (and Vegas).
Regards,
Stuart
