I have my camera set to auto rotate tall and it does that on the initial review. But afterwards, when I toggle through the photos taken in portrait mode, they are not being rotated to fill the back of the LCD frame. Is there a setting I need to change to fix that? Or a button on the back to rotate it while being viewed again?

Thanks,

The two menu settings you need to check are:
Playback/Rotate-tall
Setup/Auto-Image-Rotation

I prefer Playback/Rotate-tall set to "off" so that the image is bigger since the long side of the image stays on the long side of the LCD.

It might be possible that stuff in the Retouch menu might change this setting for individual pictures, but I have never played with any of those settings.

Yes, I think I turned it to ON, which would be opposite of what I wanted it to do. Will change it back.
