Image rotates on upload

I understand that this has been a problem for several folk on the forum. Usually I find stripping the exif data helps but the only way I could get the image to be correctly displayed was to follow the advice of a previous post on the forum 2 years ago and resize the image. The problem is that my clients are unlikely to have the time or perhaps even the software to be able to do this. Has there been any additions to Perch files or the gallery files in the past couple of years to get round this? Thanks in advance.

Yes, this was only a problem with Perch 2 as far as I'm aware.

I have Perch 3 and still have the problem.

Sorry, wrong diagnostics, I'm working on a couple of sites at the moment.

Is this using the Gallery app? If so, does the same problem occur if an image is uploaded into Assets?

It just seems to be in the Gallery that there is a problem.

Is this a new project you're setting up with Gallery, or an old site you're updating? If it's new, is there a reason to use Gallery over the inbuilt Assets functionality? Gallery is a bit old and creaky at this point.

It's a new project. The reason I went with the Gallery is that I am developing 3 projects, one after the other, and all need a gallery - one needs to have multiple file upload. However, with this one the gallery is pretty simple so, I'm going to take up your advice and just use the Assets. Thanks for your help
