so what is you question...?
You say it is rotated 90 degrees, ...then you say it displays OK...?

Ultimately you need to make sue the image is orientated properly as-is.
If the image is oriented properly, then it should display properly...

But I am a bit confused...
I've loaded the converters from the office
I have never had to do this, ...can you explain?

It's funny, but when i load the image in photoshop, spin it 90, still same issue, spin it back 90, it loads ok....i have a feeling there must be something wrong with the jpg, or some liitle piece of dirt in the jpg file which is triggering this..
I have to confess i just tried an image from a library, and its loading ok.

So you create the image in Photoshop, then Photoshop rotates it?
Or are you saying that the image looks OK in Photoshop, ...but in Access it looks rotated?

If you use another image editor, that OK?

Warehouse guys take photo on mobile phone, when it loads into access its flipped.
In photoshop it looks ok, but if i flip it twice, its working ok with access control.

OK, I see now...
Mobile phone images can have issues with orientation.
Find out what orientation the phone must be in so that the image displays correctly, ...then tell them to always use that orientation when taking photos.
