This is what I want to do:

<% if ImageFile.Orientation = 2 %>
$ImageFile.SetWidth(135)
<% else %>
$ImageFile.SetHeight(135)
<% end_if %>

I can use $ImageFile.Orientation outside if the <% %> and it prints on the screen nicely. But If I try and use it inside <% %> the template breaks.
Do I have the wrong syntax? I've tried every variation I can think of. Or is it just not possible? I know I can get around this by adding a method into the controller but it's annoying to have to do that when I can print the Orientation property onto the page.

I found the answer here:

http://www.silverstripe.org/template-questions/show/272774#post272774

it's

<% control ImageFile %>
<% if Orientation = 2 %>
$SetWidth(135)
<% else %>
$SetHeight(135)
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>
