    My wife and I recently purchased a Nikon Coolpix 510 and when we're trying to download them to the computer, all of the images are in horizontal form (it doesn't matter if they were vertical or horizontal). It's getting annoying because we have to re-download each photo as vertical and re-save it to the computer. Would there be a setting in the camera that can help us change that? Thanks.

    The camera should automatically record the images in the horizontal orientation if the picture is taken while the camera is in that orientation. If you turn the camera on its side the images should be recorded in the vertical orientation.

    There's a setting in the playback menu which permits you to change the orientation of individual images.
