problems posting pictures

Post by DonkeyKong » Sat May 20, 2017 3:18 am

Hi Everyone

Just tried to add some pictures onto my post but they are either upside down or in the wrong orientation (portrait pic turned sideways)

Can anyone help?
2004 E85 Stirling Grey 2.5L.
Very much original spec apart from roof motor relocation and non run flats.
Not too mechanical savvy so just enjoying the experience.

What image hosting service are you using, most have an edit mode to rotate/flip images.

If you're using the forum attachment method or a file hosting service, rather than an image-hosting service, then you have to ensure your photo is oriented correctly on the device before it's uploaded.

Most phones will let you rotate the photos from within their own photo app - on iOS devices the file metadata contains details of orientation, so that the MacOS/iOS can display it correctly. This info is discarded by most other OSes & websites, so it shows them as rotated.

I'd just use a free photo-hosting site like instagram, imgur, tinypic, pinterest, imageshack, etc.

Can those of you who experienced problems with image orientation please try again... I have made a change to the forum that should fix it. You will need to add the image as an attachment though rather than linking.
