    Q1 Sometimes when I view an image, there are black bars on the top and bottom of the image. I need to rotate the phone to landscape mode so the image will appear full screen without black bars. At this moment, I want to lock the screen to prevent it from rotation (I only want to pause and unpause rotation.) . Although it is full screen now, the image is not facing the correct direction so I want to disable/lock rotation and then I can turn the phone to potrait mode to see the image in full size.

    Q2 Another question is, is there a way to automatically remove the black bars and set image to full size?

    Using S4

    Yes. View the image in landscape and then slide your notification bar down from the top of the screen. Scroll your top icons over (wifi, mobile data, sound, gps, etc) until you see the screen rotation icon. Press it to disable it and the photo won't shift rotation when you turn the phone again.

    If you're in the stock gallery app, you can also use 2 fingers to rotate the image so that it appears in portrait mode.

    It will save in that orientation & I believe that will give the result you're asking for.

    Wtf? It used to work on the s4, but you're right. I just tried it on my girlfriend's, & it wouldn't work.

    Here's a screenshot from my Note doing it.

    On the s4, you can tap menu, then there's an option to rotate left or right. That'll do the same thing.

    Very. I know I did it on the s4 when it was mine. Can't think of a reason they'd take that it in the latest update & include it in a newer phone.

    Yeah your phone is like mine. Press the Menu key while looking at a picture that is portrayed wrong. Scroll down in the settings that come up when you have selected the Menu button and select rotate left or rotate right.

    Is there a way or app that will auto rotate/remove the black bars? So I do not need to go through each image to do it. As long as the image fill the whole screen without black bars I am happy.
