Rotating photos

Post by pinzinator » Sat Aug 17, 2019 11:54 am

Has anyone tried to post a photo and it appears 90 degrees rotated when viewed? I have this happen all the time. So I rotate the photo in anticipation of this, and the photo then appears rotated again in another direction. Is there a trick to posting a photo and it shows the same way as downloaded?

Yes, this happens to me frequently. At least for my environment,
which is Mac based. The trick I learned if to launch the picture in
a Image viewed then simply save it back to where it was read from.
For some reason that results is "What you see is what you get".

I appreciate your response, but I find it a bit confusing. Could you describe it in step-by-step?

I would find photos rotated 90 degrees CW. So I would rotate the photo 90 degrees CCW and then it would orient correctly. Now I am discovering that is rotates at random, there is no way to anticipate which direction.

Your problem may be different than mine, but here's my observation and fix.

First, PIX's I upload are taken from my iPhone, which I then email to myself
to then post.

Once the PIX is emailed, I will move that PIX to a folder on my Mac.

Here's where it got odd. When I then would load that PIX to the Forum WEB page
from the Mac folder, then I noticed it will post upside down even though looking
at the same PIX on the Mac it was right-side up. Once I observed this, I started to
play around. I went to my Mac folder and viewed that PIX using a image viewer, e.g.
your favorite viewer then "Open File". There I saw the image right-side up, which was
not what I was seeing previewing the image on the Forum. What I then tried was to
over-write the PIX right back to the folder I Read it from -- which should not have
changed anything -- but it did. From that point on re-posting that PIX to the Forum
showed it right-side up and thus corrected.

Since then I always read the PIX into a image viewer and over-wite it. When ever I
forget to do this the PIX is always inverted.

Hope this helps, might not work for you but it's a quick try.
