Re: Windows Photo Viewer, Rotation and File Size

Mind boggling. You are correct. I just tried the same thing with one of my pics. Original was 1.22MB. After reorienting to portrait it was 573KB. I flipped it back and it stayed at 573KB. I did get a notice when I flipped it back that the viewer could not save changes as the picture no longer existed. I guess they mean the original. I am guessing reorienting an image creates a new one and the original, larger image no longer exists. I still have the raw file so can reprocess but this is one strange quirk. Glad you posted this, thanks,
