Have a number of jpegs originating from scans of prints. Some of these needed to be rotated to correctly show them as portrait orientated images.

Using ViewNX 2, I selected the images requiring rotation and clicked "Rotate 90oCW". The thumbnails changed orientation but the thumbnail images became half grey and the images were not able to opened/viewed.

Other image programmes were also not able to display the "rotated" images. Therefore the files were seriously corrupted by the ViewNX 2 operation.

I'm using Mac OS X 10.6.6 and don't know if the problem also occurred on earlier versions of ViewNX 2.

Anyone else experience this error?
