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.
