Something I found on the net made me wonder if it might be a workaround, although it was not about your particular situation:

---------------------------------------------------------
Open your rotated JPG image in Paint.
Use Ctrl+R (Image|Flip/Rotate menu option) to open the Flip and Rotate dialog.
Select Rotate by angle.
Select 270 degrees so the top is at the LEFT side.
Save as 24-bit Bitmap.
Save as JPG.
---------------------------------------------------------

I don't know why you have to save it as a bitmap first though.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

This is TV? In which case both are likely to be limitations of the TV so there is little you can do about it.

About the only thing you can do is split the photos into more folders and rotate the offending pictures before using them on it. The rotations are probably related to the way round the camera was held when the pictures were first taken.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Does the tv manual say anything about the limitations you're experiencing?

What is the model number of the sd card or flash drive the photos are on?

We could do with the model number of the TV too as there are many 19" Samsung TV's, all of which are quite different.

Thanks all
Can I answer all points together
Tv model T19C300EW
Manual no help
USB 64Gb formatted NTFS

I rotated offending pictures, tv just rotated them back. If I look at the picture on PC they are all correct way up. Thought I would be clever and rotate a portrate to landscape, it left it landscape. Strange thing is that 2 portrait photos taken by the same camera one gets turned the other does not.

Thanks again

Sorry didn't say, I have split photo's into folders, but that makes an hours viewing, it would be nice to set it so yo rarely see the same picture.

I guess I am asking too much.

Well done Derek, your solution works.

I agree the bitmap seemed odd so I refined the above to
Copy into Paint
Rotate 90 degree
Save from Paint

The rotate was odd, sometimes clockwise some anticlockwise
Also odd, seems to be my decent camera, a Nikon D60, but only about 10% of portraits pictures taken.
I would love to know why the TV chooses that limited selection to rotate.

Thanks again, only the 1000 limit to solve and I would then suggest Samsung market it as a Digital frame. It is already much better than the dedicated frame I originally had, and £40 cheaper.

"I would love to know why the TV chooses that limited selection to rotate"
Very strange indeed if they were all taken on the same camera. It would be much easier to imagine if they were from different sources.

Whatever, good to hear you are one step further.

I think I figured it out.

When you rotate a picture on the PC, it marks the metadata as to the rotation angle. If the picture was never rotated, it has no rotation data.

When the TV shows the picture it shows the angle of the LAST picture that had rotation metadata. All the following pictures will end up with that rotation until another rotated picture is shown.

The workaround is once you get all the pictures in the PC at the angle you want them, select all the photos in the folder and rotate them, then rotate them back. This will mark every picture with rotation metadata.

Well done Argold57, sounds like it will work.
I have done all mine one at a time.

I have also noticed that if I keep all jegs under 6meg then the TVs does not seem to miss any from the show, if there are any over 6meg then I will randomly lose pictures from the show, not necessarerly the over 6meg ones either.

Samsung missing a trick here, if they sorted out the 1000 picture limit and the other little niggles, and made a simpler quick menu, I am sure they would get sales flooding in.
