Photo posting help please

What do I need to do to have my photo attachments post with the proper orientation?

Everything posts 90 degrees rotated --even when I rotate the original .jpg 90 degrees the other way, resave it rotated, and then upload it!?

Thanks.

Sounds like you are shooting pix with an iPhone or iPad.
I'm on a Mac or I'd help. Usually I open pix in PhotoShop, adjust them and save. That strips the instructions that cause the rotation.

I take pics with a regular camera and have had them show up here sideways, too, so I don't think the "i" whatever is the sole cause.

Is it a new (system) problem?

This has been showing up lately on FiberglassRV.com, too.

What I've found, since they did server work a couple weeks ago, is that it takes forever to open both Escape Forum and FGRV.
I deleted all my history, but that didn't help. It just meant I had to log in again.

I've found most of the egg forums software prefer landscape photos. It will take your portrait photo and rotate it. I try to fix them when I see 'em. I'm on a PC, it's simple to use Microsoft Picture Manager which I think is a default program with Office.... Picture > Rotate and Flip (90 degrees), Save. Now import to the forum.

Just like Glenn's solution with Photoshop, it strips the info.

That's exactly what I did -- still uploads to the forum rotated! Or, more correctly, NOT rotated, because now the original on my computer is "rotated" and it uploads rotated 180 degrees the other way!

I'll just get in the habit of taking the photos in landscape.

Ain't technology fun?

iPhone for this particular photo. 4. IOS 7 still. But I have had the same problem with the iPad Air 2.

On our trip I'm taking my Canon G12.
