Images are being flipped on InDesign 2023 > 2024 update
As title describes, I have a file that is suitable for InDesign 2023 (126.96.36.199), when I open it in InDesign 2024 (188.8.131.52) some rare cases (twice in 1 day) there have been images that have been flipped upside down.
Fortunately both times the client's have picked this up, I work for a print industry and send back PDFs for print approval. This is the final stage before print.

If you are experiencing issues with images being flipped after updating from Adobe InDesign 2023 to 2024, here are some steps you can take to address the problem:
Review Document Setup:
Check the document setup, including the page size and orientation. Make sure it matches the intended layout.
Update Adobe InDesign:
Ensure that you are using the latest version of Adobe InDesign 2024. Check for updates through the Adobe Creative Cloud application and install any available updates.
Image Import Settings:
When importing images, check the import settings in the "Place" dialog box. Ensure that the rotation settings are correct and not causing images to be flipped unintentionally.
Verify the metadata of the images themselves. Some images may have embedded orientation information that could affect how they are displayed. Check if the images appear correctly in other applications.
Image Editing Software:
If you edited the images in external software, ensure that the edits and rotations were saved correctly. Some image editors may apply transformations that can affect how the images are displayed.
Resetting preferences in Adobe InDesign can sometimes resolve unexpected behavior. To do this, close InDesign and then launch it while holding down Ctrl + Alt + Shift (Windows) or Command + Option + Shift (Mac). A dialog will appear, asking if you want to delete preference files.
Examine Linked Files:
Check the links panel in InDesign to examine the linked images. Verify that the linked files are not corrupt and that they appear correctly in other applications.
Test in Previous Version:
Open the same document in the previous version of InDesign (2023) and see if the issue persists. This can help determine if the problem is specific to the new version.
Contact Adobe Support:
If the problem persists and you are unable to resolve it using the above steps, consider reaching out to Adobe Support for assistance. They may be able to provide more specific guidance based on the details of your issue.
Remember to back up your documents before making significant changes or updates. If you have specific error messages or details about how the images are being flipped, including that information can help with a more accurate diagnosis.
