So if I rotate an image 180 while editing and then try exporting the image the exported image isn’t rotated.

I would like to try to reproduce what you are seeing, Russell.

Are you rotating 180 degrees or flipping the image? (If flipping (horizontal or vertically) Or, are you doing both?
Which Export method are you using? File? Camera Roll? Something else?

It is working correctly for me. I am not able to duplicate what you are seeing. Did you undo rotation at any time during the process? There is a known issue with that. 

  1. Select image
  2. Select Crop
  3. Rotate Clockwise 90 degrees twice
  4. Save Icon
  5. Share to 
  6. Camera Roll
  7. View in Camera roll
Did I miss any steps?

Hi,  no, all as I did. It’s odd as it’s only on one image that this has happened to. If I reset all the adjustments it still exports upside down. If I take those adjustments and add them to another image it exports correctly.. so it’s something to do with the original image I guess.
