Saving A screenshot on iPad...Orientation is always vertical, porque?

Wondering if anyone else has come across a fix for this. When taking a screenshot on the iPad (by pressing the front and top buttons simultaneously) to save to your image library, it always saves the images in portrait mode- no matter what orientation you set you game to.

So basically you cant use landscape image as a screen saver for your iPad.

    How are you holding your iPad? the orientation is not based on the App, it is based on the device orientation.

    No se porque.

    I think it's an iOS glitch. I've been dealing with this since iOS 4. Also when editing with IOS's built in photo editor, they sve as png+xmp and if you try sending an edited pic it reverts it back to its original state. De madre. What a pain in the ****.

    but since the dimensions are correct, just rotate it one the Mac.

    Yes, iI am aware of that. but no matter what orientation the device is set to (in gamesalad device attributes) the image comes out in portrait mode.

    That would work fine for me but I can't expect every user to have that capability. I am working on an art studio style app andit sucks that the user can't save the image correctly to send over email or whatever.

    If the user holds the iPad in landscape orientation it should save it in that orientation. If not the user have the ability to rotate it in the Photos app, where it is saved, before sending it.

    Take a screenshot of a gamesalad app and see if it works. 1. no matter what orientation you snap the photo in, it gets saved into the photo library in portrait. 2. You cant rotate an image in the photo app.
