Posted these pictures in response to request on how to upload/post photo's in another thread and someone suggested to put in thread of it's own. Put cursor over picture and follow in number order.

Thanks.
Now all we need is a visual tutorial on how to search a topic, which has been posted many times. ;D

a lot of us are not on this forum nearly as much as you are, hence we sometimes need a quick refresh on how to do things.

thanks - ken

I have attempted posting pics and have one ready to go and pics end up sideways or upside down, must be some simple little fix, please enlighten me, thanks, Roberta

Roberta, photos taken with a phone contain "metadata". This tells the phone how to orient the photo so it appears right side up. When a photo containing this metadata is uploaded to the forum, the metadata is stripped, because the site doesn't use it.

That means that if the "native" orientation of the photo was not right side up to begin with, and metadata was used to reorient it, the photo won't display properly.

There are a couple of fixes. The first has to do with how you take photos. If possible, try to take photos in landscape mode with the home button of your phone to the right. That way, the photo will be oriented correctly when uploaded with no editing required. The other fix is to upload the photo to a pc, and to open it with a photo editor and rotate it. Then, save and upload to the forum.

There is a third fix and that is to load the photo onto the forum and let one of the moderators kindly fix it.

I'd hardly call it a fix, but I'm willing to do it if I see something wrong. Rotating pictures, is not a push-a-button solution with the software and is really above my pay grade. :cool: But, I do it anyway...

I also have to take photos on the iPad the opposite way of usual, if I want to post them here.

I think you should charge one alcoholic beverage of your choice per picture fix!;)
