Sending pictures.
« on: May 07, 2014, 03:41:39 PM »
Some members have asked why their pictures have shown up sideways.  I asked the forum's administration and here is the answer.   'I think the reason the pics are showing up sideways is because they are not adjusting them before uploading them. Tell the people with the issue to rotate the picture BEFORE uploading it and it should work. If they are uploading from their phone, it may be more difficult." - Millet

Do you mean to tell us that we can send men to the moon but we can't have this brilliant internet automatically rotate a picture for us?  What's this world coming to?   

I'm with Zands on this one, it's conspiracy to have us all tilt our heads.  Fortunately, someone found a work-around.   Hold the CTRL and ALT keys down and then press a side arrow.  That'll fix it.  (Up arrow to return to reality)

Isn't that windows Vista's shortcut to rotate the entire screen? It'll rearrange your desktop icons though.

I use my iPhone almost exclusively and rarely use my Mac book laptop. I tried to figure out how to turn pics on iPhone before upload, but can't. This site wants to place pics horizontally, but most people take a photo with phone held vertically. Oh, but that's right, it's my fault. At least it's easier to get a pic on this site; was almost impossible on citrus forum. We are getting there.

I suggest using imgur.com for picture hosting, you can upload without creating any sort of account, it is free and the pictures seem to stay up forever.  There are also built-in tools to rotate/crop/resize though doing it in windows is probably easier.

You can then put a link to the image in-line in tags like this:  [img]http://link_to_the_image[/img]

If that image hosting site would just read the EXIF orientation data that's in the jpg files it would be able to rotate the photos correctly automatically. I'm surprised they didn't do such a simple thing. That is unless your camera was pretty Mich horizontal when the picture was taken.
