Why are my photos sometimes sideways in Photosynth?

I've synthed a number of photos from my buddy's wedding. Turns out they come out of the process sideways, upside down, etc? Is there something I'm doing wrong when I take the photos?

Switch to 2D view and see if the majority of your photos are sideways (or upside down). If yes, then please rotate them to the correct orientation (using any photo software) and re-synth.

If the majority of the photos don't have correct orientation tag in their exif data and they are not manually rotated to correct orientation then it is impossible for Photosynth to know the actual world/object up direction without more in depth scene understanding.
