 It may be worth a revisit to #7042.  Some mobile devices that use
 WordPress for Android are not capturing images in the correct orientation,
 instead they are writing the EXIF orientation to the image instead (which
 is a standard method these days).  In wp-android and other external
 clients that offer full size image upload, these images will not be
 rotated correctly upon upload.

 Since most mobile users are on the go with no access to the wp-admin area
 to rotate the images themselves, it would work best if the image was
 rotated for them automatically.

 Hopefully there's a solution that wouldn't strip the EXIF data, some way
 to copy the EXIF data before rotating, then save it back again?
