Rotated Photos

Post  trolleydriver on 11/1/2016, 10:18 pm

Some of our members are having problems with uploaded photos being turned sideways.

This problem has been reported on the Forumotion Forum.  Please see the following link.

http://help.forumotion.com/t147318-photos-sideways#1014942

In that thread it is suggested to do the following:

- Open the image in a free image editing tool (e.g., MSPaint)
- The image should be the right way up
- Rotate the image 90 degrees
- Rotate the image 90 degrees back to the original position
- Use "Save As" to save the image 
- Upload it to the forum post

If you try the above please post a reply and let us know if the solution works.

Another suggestion ... try taking the photo in Landscape mode rather than Portrait mode to see if that makes a difference.

Did they say what's changed? I never had this problem. I have to be honest, I probably won't post photos as often if I have to do anything more than pull them from my existing photos as I've done in the past.

From what I understand, the image storage software used by the forum reads some meta data stored in the photo files. It was something that photographers asked for (note: we are not the only ones using this image storage software).

I think if you just take landscape photos with the camera in the normal position then it should not be a problem. If you take portrait (long side up and down) photos then there could be a problem. I'm not sure but it may depend on whether you rotate the camera in one direction versus the other direction when taking portrait shots. I expect the position of the camera is what gets recorded in the meta data and is what messes things up when the photos are uploaded. Maybe certain cameras or cell phones are more susceptible to this problem.

I used a lot of "I think", "could", "maybe" in the above. That's because I really don't know for sure.

Please do not stop taking and posting photos on the forum.

I have a PC with Windows 7. I download from my iPhone and store them under My Photos. It I had to do it another way I would be stymied. Shocked

I have the same exact equipment but I email the pictures to myself.  Pull them up and rotate as necessary and then "save as or copy as " in my pictures sub-directory.  I have taken pictures both portrait and landscape and some come out rotated when I first pull them up but after they are saved, they never become incorrectly rotated.  

As TD said, it may depend on the phone, the computer software, or who know what else.

My photos are posting sideways when viewed from PC.  I take photos with my Iphone 6s.  I am locking the rotation to portrait when I take them now, but that isn't correcting the problem.  When viewed with a mobile device, they are correct.  
Does anyone know how to solve this problem above and beyond uploading them to the PC prior to posting them?  I don't always have access to the pc to post.  It would be very nice if I could find a way to take and upload photos with my phone that would post correctly in both mobile and pc platforms.

Test

Post  brianj555 on 10/27/2017, 9:24 am

I took this photo with the phone locked in portrait mode and turned the phone sideways.

Ok.  This somewhat worked, but it looks like I need to turn the camera in the other direction.  It is right side up via mobile.  So..  thinking Now to try to remember which way I turned the phone! rofl

Test 2

Post  brianj555 on 10/27/2017, 9:27 am


Got it! cheers
So If I lock the phone in "portrait mode" and turn the phone where the camera is on the left , in the upper left hand corner, the image appears to come up right side up on both mobile and pc!   cheers rock on
Now the challenge is to remember to lock the phone rotation and turn it the right way when taking my pics.

Well done Brian.

It's a bit like what I said in an earlier post above, "I'm not sure but it may depend on whether you rotate the camera in one direction versus the other direction when taking portrait shots."

I just cheat now, do most of my photos on the square setting since they end up getting posted.
