Does anyone know if anybody supports the Orientation field? It
Some do, some don't. According to the specification document, readers aren't required to support it.
Mind you, not supporting the orientation tag is pure laziness. For the writer of a viewer using any of the windowed interfaces of modern operating systems, displaying the image correctly is usually just a matter of setting up the destination rectangle coordinates correctly and that only takes a very few lines of code.
<sigh> Now only if adobe/photoshop did, then maybe everyone else will.
