How do I manually set D40 image rotation, in-camera, on improperly rotated image
I have a D40. On occasional the camera's orientation sensor will guess wrong. Is there a way to alter the orientation flag in-camera, so the images appear properly when using the in-camera slideshow, and are properly tagged when exported from the camera?
I tried exporting images from the camera to iPhoto, rotating them, then copying them back to the SD card... but the camera won't display the modified image.

Sometimes my D40 misses the actual orientation but not too often and usually when it was not shooting level while rotated.
You will need to use Nikon's ViewNX2 to do the rotation work and still have the camera read the shots for a slide show. You will also need an external reader for the memory card as ViewNX2 will not read or write to the card while it is in the camera connected by a USB cable. I have tested it and it will work.
