    Uploaded Picture Orientation

    I see that many folks struggle with uploading pictures here (and other forums) because many cell phone pictures only display properly if the picture was taken with the phone held sideways rather than upright. I have a website and was able to find a plugin that corrects for that so no matter how the picture was taken, it will display correctly. The plugin was free on my platform, and seems to work perfectly. I know other forums run some sort of plugin to account for this and figured it was worth asking about here...a lot easier than always remembering to take pictures with the phone sideways!

    Any chance someone could look into this?

    You don't need to take landscape photos to make them appear right side up. Portrait ones work also.

    Okay, then how do you do that? Any time I upload a cell phone picture that was taken in portrait it displays 90* off. I recall that's a problem mainly with iPhone pictures...what I'm using. I added a free plugin on my website and now it makes them display properly.

    Does your Iphone automatically rotate the screen when you rotate the phone...like from portrait to landscale for instance???--- in camera mode...

    However you hold an iPhone, the image will be displayed properly when you take a picture. If I then look at that picture on the phone it will rotate to stay properly oriented if I rotate the phone while viewing, but that's not really the issue.

    The problem is when you take a picture with the phone held vertically (portrait orientation) and then post it to the forum...it will display on the screen rotated 90* to the left. If you take a picture with the phone held horizontally (landscape) and then post it to the forum it will display properly. This is a known issue with iPhone pictures and many websites are running a plugin to correct for it.

    If you send an iPhone photo to a Samsung mobile device or Windows computer, save it, edit to rotate it and save it again you can then post it on this forum and it will display properly.

    As an experiment I took an iPhone pic taken in portrait, edited it and rotated it 90* right then saved it and posted it here...still displayed 90* left, so it's not something you can easily correct.

    I found this problem when I set up my website several years ago and it was a known issue...add a plugin and the problem goes away. I just did a Google search on the topic and the first hit said something like "most websites already correct for this" or something similar.

    Also as an FYI, my pictures are all shot in portrait. I guess I won’t post pics here as I’ve had this problem here every time. I did look up Irfanview, however it seems it’s for PC’s and not iPhones.

    are you holding your phone upside down?
    i am including three images. one portrait, one portrait mode portrait and a screenshot with an arrow pointing to the portrait/landscape identifier in the iOS camera app. all shots taken with my 11 Pro Max.

    cheers,

    well that’s interesting. the photo mode, portrait oriented is sideways. the portrait mode in portrait orientation is as expected.

    I'll have to dig into this, I have never experienced a sideways image before.

    I was definitely holding my phone properly. I don't think I've used portrait mode, just photo mode so far...

    As long as I reset the exif rotation tag it put pics up fine no matter where they are from.
    Not sure why some devices are different... although I have noticed if you're using an android device it will do it if you don't have autorotation turned on for the phone.

    That lets you check the orientation, but I can't find how it will let you change the orientation....that's the real problem.

    If it does not show correct orientation then I'll go back to the photo on my computer and rotate it- seems to work then.

    Some times I just rotate it a full 360 back to normal and then it will load to the forum correctly.

    I haven't been able to get that to work on my Mac. I've read that it will work on a PC, but I don't have one at home. I've actually e-mailed an image from my iPhone to my work Samsung, saved it, rotated it, saved it with a new name, sent it back to my Mac and uploaded it and had it work....but that's kind of ridiculous.

    There are plugins that do this automatically, so I'm not sure why there isn't one here. My dinky blog site has a plugin to fix that issue....crazy.

    Interesting, I'm on an iMac.

    I'll pull the photo out of iPhoto to the desktop, open the photo in Preview and then rotate 360

    I just went to my post in the classifieds and saved the sideways picture I posted. I then opened it on the Mac, rotated it 90* and saved it again. Then I uploaded it here and it displayed properly.

    The problem is, if I take a picture with my phone my Mac (tried this on a Mac Mini, MacBook and iMac) orients it properly when I look at it so when I go to upload, it's sideways here. I tried to trick the system and rotated a picture 90* to the right, saved it that way so it showed up sideways 90* to the right on the Mac, then upload it here...still displays rotated 90* to the left.

    I can't imagine why saving it from here, then rotating it right, and uploading it again works...ugh.

    That little icon you pointed to with the red arrow is the front/back camera selector. It does rotate with camera orientation but that is all it does.
    Do not believe everything that you think.
