Does anybody know why almost half of some 100+ photos turn sideways when downloaded onto my profile? (when you click on them on the actual thread they turn and present correctly!)

I'm trying to complete my house renovation thread but sideways photos just look terrible..

Brian, I agree because it happens to me and I can't figure it out.

If you all are done fighting, I'll try to explain the reason.

iPads and iPhones don't rotate the pictures they save to the "correct" orientation, they just add an EXIF header which explains the correct orientation for displaying the image. Other phones and most cameras (or their download software) actually rotate the image. Many systems just display the image and don't care about the EXIF info on orientation. So there's a good chance that a photo will be shown sideways (or even upside down if shot on an iPad, you don't usually hold your phone upside down).

Nobody's fighting and most know the reason for this. If it is a bug or feature is down to the usual Apple or Not discussion!

However so far I am the only one you provided a truly "daft", but working, Paint workaround, I am sure there are better ones?

And I dont mean the laconic "go buy an Ipad/phone" advice!

That’s exactly what I ended up doing - going through every photo using paint and saving a second copy.

Just a test.

How many of you see this picture sideways?

Which device do you use for viewing/browsing the Beoworld website site?

Is it different when someone uses the app?

It’s correct for me on the app on both iPhone and iPad.

Correctly on Win/PC but it does not look like native Ipad photo,- Scaled ?

Native Ipad/Iphone picture will always show up rotated, (based on the sensor of course 50%) on my computers.

That photo was taken with my iPad - I don’t remember whether horizontal or vertical.

It was then cropped in the Photos (iPad) app and resized using the PhotoResizer (iPad) app.

Stored to my Dropbox and from there put into the thread using the built-in ‘Options’ -> ‘Add’ -> ‘Choose Archive’, ‘Save’ method.

It could not get more iPadish, I guess 😁
