iPhone : Image Captured in portrait mode is loaded in landscape mode in UIImageview

I am developing an Application where I am capturing image in portrait mode and then moving to another class with Image data and showing that image in a UIImageView on a UIScrollView.

Now If I am taking image form library,it is working fine, but If I have to capture an Image it is showing data in landscape mode. Below is my code of both classes. :

Class 1:

- (void)imagePickerController:(UIImagePickerController *)picker didFinishPickingMediaWithInfo:(NSDictionary *)info
NSData *imgData = UIImagePNGRepresentation([info objectForKey:@"UIImagePickerControllerOriginalImage"]);

[picker dismissModalViewControllerAnimated:YES];
image = [[UIImage alloc] initWithData:imgData];

CGImageRef imgRefCrop = image.CGImage;
UIImage *photo = [UIImage imageWithCGImage:imgRefCrop];

PhotoCropperPage *photoCropper = [[PhotoCropperPage alloc]

[photoCropper setMinZoomScale:0.3f];
[photoCropper setMaxZoomScale:4.0f];
[self.navigationController pushViewController:photoCropper animated:YES];

Class 2:

- (void) loadPhoto
if ( == nil) {

CGFloat w =;
CGFloat h =;

CGRect imageViewFrame = CGRectMake(0.0f, 0.0f, roundf(w / 2.0f), roundf(h / 2.0f));
self.scrollView.contentSize = imageViewFrame.size;

UIImageView *iv = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithFrame:imageViewFrame];
iv.image =;
[self.scrollView addSubview:iv];
self.imageView = iv;
[iv release];

I am not getting where I am doing a mistake? Can anybody point me out? Thanks in advance.


Just found an awesome answer to your question. Here's the link:

And then you can do something like that:

- (void) imagePickerController:(UIImagePickerController *)picker didFinishPickingMediaWithInfo:(NSDictionary *)info
  UIImage *theImage = [[info objectForKey:@"UIImagePickerControllerOriginalImage"]fixOrientation];
  //rest of your code

and theImage will be your image with correct orientation. It worked in my project

Hope it helps.
