Hi!  I shoot tethered to Lightroom with my camera facing down (parallel to a table surface shooting food) and the images import with random rotations since the camera is not sure what to do.  To combat this, I have tried turning the auto-rotate on, off, just to camera, to camera and computer - basically every option I know of.  Additionally, I have tried manually rotating images hoping that the "apply to next shot" feature will override the rotation but that does not work either.  PLEASE provide a solution for this, where I can apply the same rotation to all images AS they come in through the camera vs. needing to apply it per-image.  When I have clients looking at my monitor and I have to manually rotate each image it looks really bad and is very time consuming over the course of a full day shoot. This would be so appreciated -  Thank you!!

I just clicked that link and it took me to a site that doesn't seem to be official Adobe - just curious why requesting something there would have more impact than on here?

What camera are you using?  I have rotation off in my Canons and none of the photos rotate in Lr.

Not sure where John's link eventually ends up, but this is the "feedback" link you are looking for:

The ability to copy/sync absolute rotation is inexplicably missing from LR. As a workaround, you could use the Any Crop plugin's Set Rotation command to set the rotation of a batch of photos to 0 degrees.

I have exactly the same problem. Shooting with the camera on a copystand. Canon utilities lets me rotate images 180º which is very handy but I would like to shoot using light room tethering but don't have the option.

Hello Adobe people!

I'm a recent Apple Aperture convert and have enjoyed learning the excellent features in Lightroom classic.

However my current workflow is shooting with Cannon utilities to Bridge, ACR and finally Photoshop. this would be simplified if I could use the tethered functionality in Lightroom. I shoot with the camera on a copy-stand so each image needs to be rotated 180º on import. Canon utilities lets me do this. It would be most advantageous if Lightroom would do the same.

Any chance this could be included in a future update?
