Photos in wrong orientation

I was trying to start a Jeep build thread with photos. I used the upload photos feature but the photos seem to upload in any orientation they want to. Pictures that are the right way up on windows upload backwards here. Easy fix I flipped the picture backwards on windows, but no it still uploads as upside down. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong.

also posted in your thread in general discussion


are you left handed? most phones orientate photos for the right handed and if you use your left to take pictures, then the data the phone attaches to the photo orientates it 180 degrees off. as said, the easiest is to use paint on a pc to rotate the photo and save a new version of it to fix existing photos.

I answered there but realized I didn’t understand. I am right handed but your saying the photo info could be saved upside down if I took it with my iPhone holding it the wrong way.

correct. if you look at the link that jbolty posted in your general discussion thread it talks about where the side buttons need to be for the iphone to give the photo the correct orientation information. With the phone longways (landscape photo) the volume buttons need to be toward the ground.

Also you can edit photos on the iphone (photos app) to set them in the desired orientation before posting.

Well that seems like a design flaw because if you hold the phone in landscape with the volumes buttons up you can use the volume up button as a shutter button like on a real camera, but that also means all of you photos will be saved upside down.
