    Yeah, that's what I was thinking and it might shorten the investigative process...we'll see.

    I should also thank you for not assuming my level of knowledge.
    It's nice that you take the time to include the "how to" in your posts.
    Really saves us both time since I (and probably others) don't have to keep saying "show me how."

    Reboot and see if rotate works. If yes, use the above to start enabling them a few at a time until the problem returns then you will know the cause.
    Ok, did this with W10 and only Bit Defender AV is running so disabled it.
    Let's see what a pic does.
    Edit:
    Looks like Bit Defender might be the culprit.
    Next post will be with it enabled again.

    Uh, maybe not.
    Just discovered BD did not disable and so was running when I posted above.
    Also, I attached that pic by dragging what was previously UL to here.
    Back to the desktop for this one.
    Edit:
    Ok, I'm lost.
    Need to take a break unless there is something obvious.

    Might want to uninstall Bit Defender then test. A lot of times disabling doesn't disable everything. Reinstall the latest version once done testing or stay with Windows Defender;

    I'll try anything at this point but I don't quite see how BD would interfere with 8 and not 7
    Is Windows Defender any good?

    Try again in W8.
    Bit Defender uninstalled, Windows Defender activated.
    Vertical pic rotated 90 CW.

    So, what happens if I try uploading directly from my S3...
    Oh, well...L--O--L.

    Edit:
    I've deleted all but the three originally posted pics just to avoid confusing myself any more.
