TwentyTen + Featured Image: image edits not being used (4 posts)

    I've never really been comfortable with the on-board image editor in WordPress, and here's a good example of why:

    I'm just setting up a vanilla WP installation and am using the TwentyTen theme. I've uploaded an image, rotated it 90 degrees (using the Edit Image feature), saved it and have used it as my Featured Image.

    The image that appears in my header and featured image area is still the original, rotated version.

    When I go back to the Gallery for this page, by clicking on the Featured Image in the Edit Posts section, the image is rotated correctly. But back on the Edit Posts section, or on the actual site the image is not rotated.

    I've hit "Save all changes" a dozen times, I've switched sizes a few times, and I'm using "Apply changes to: All image sizes" in the Edit box. I'm running out of options.

    Can someone walk me through the correct process to upload, rotate, and set a featured image?

    I'm having the same problem and it just started a day or two ago. My image in my media gallery is portrait, but on my site it's rotated 90 degrees as if a landscape photo. I'm guessing it is the way it was taken with the iphone. I took a screenshot of the photo and uploaded that and it worked. Odd, I know, but at least now my image is correct.

    Arr. I'm going to have to cross-post on wordpress.stackexchange.com and see if there are any more responses there.

    I do not believe the featured post option takes any of the edits into account. It just crops from the center and appropriately resizes the base image. AFAIK anyway
