I have the same issue, but it looks like it IS an issue with ACF.
My client has uploaded some images taken with an iPhone to the WP Media library. The orientation is wrong, so she corrects it using the image edit functionality in WP. When she inserts that image into a text field, it has the correct orientation. However, when selected using the ACF image picker, the orientation is the original incorrect version, as uploaded. It’s the same in the admin and in the published page.
I added a plugin that automatically changes orientation of image on upload using the EXIF information, but the end result is the same: images are correct when inserted into a text field, but not when using an ACF image field.
Is there anything I can do to correct this?
