when i post a wallpaper it automatically rotates it to landscape, there is no obvious way to stop this, is there a way to keep a portrait picture portrait when making it a wallpaper?

??? Can't get the desktop background to rotate a picture here using 10.6.

Is the picture saved to your machine in the proper orientation?

Try selecting the Fit to Screen option.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Checked here as well .... it keeps the orientation the picture was taken in.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

What if you rotate the picture in the oposite direction before setting it as the wallpaper, hoping for the desktop to get rotated into place?
