content aware fit and EXIF information
Content aware fit works fine with landscape oriented pictures. And with pictures saved from Photoshop, even if in portrait mode. But when I place a picture in portrait mode which has not been saved by Photoshop yet, there is a problem: Content aware fit seems to ignore the EXIF information in the picture, and treats the picture as landscape-oriented.
I get the same problem when using portrait mode pictures in an ePub with flexible layout. So I think InDesign should read the information of a picture more accurate than it does now.
Similar but on a different part of the program: InDesign doesn't read colorsync profiles in pictures when they are not saved through Photoshop first. I disapprove this laziness, since Photoshop is perfectly capable of reading the information.
This is fixed in latest release of InDesign (15.0). Please try our latest release.

Indeed, the part of the reading of Exif information is corrected in InDesign 15.0. No problems with that anymore.
