    Hi!

    If I try to print a picture of received fax.tif via Windows Photo Gallery...
    Print... option it forces landscape orientation even if I explicitly set it
    to portrait in printer options.

    Unchecking Fit picture to frame does not help, it does however shows correct
    orientation for a moment but it is immediately changed back to landscape in
    preview. Printed picture is then of course very distorted. I have tried this
    with 5 different printers. No go ...

    How can I force portrait orientation with Fit picture to frame (1 fax image
    printed per page)?

    Thank you for any help,
    Tomaz

    Have the pictures you are trying to print already been rotated 90 degrees in
    Photo Gallery?
    If not then I believe all you are selecting in the print function is the
    aspect ratio for printing and not an actual picture orientation.

    This apparently is a known issue. I have the same problem. I receive tif
    image as a fax but when I try to print Windows Photo Gallery sets the image
    default in landscape. I am going to try to install a photo printing program
    and try to avoid Windows Photo Gallery until MS fixes this bug. You can try
    this link to see if they come up with a solution. I sure hope they do soon. I
    will reply if I have success.

    I have been having this issue as well. So far their seems to be no fix.
    The guys at petri.co.il have not found a fix either. I hope Microsoft
    gets on this issue.
