UPDATE: After the fix, both vertical and horizontal images appear correctly in WP Galleries, but we're still seeing issues with photos like the one below.

Is there a way to counteract this effect in the gallery settings? They used to automatically be adjusted, prior to one of the WP upgrades, and would appear as they do in the imgur gallery below.
