i don't think, this is a matter of resolution.

since some weeks, opencv looks at the exif data in jpeg, and respects the orientation while reading, but that part is not exposed to you at all, so you're unable to (save it somewhere and) "rotate it back to the original orientation" when using imwrite later.
