Recently upon dragging and dropping my photos into a thread, they come in at a different orientation than taken. Not sure why they are rotating upon dragging into the file upload.

Originally they were fine, now they come in wrong???

Attached is an example.

Thanks for any assistance!

Hey there

Most pictures these days come straight from our phones. The phone's software embeds some coding into each image when it is taken. This code tells the phone which way is 'up' and displays it correctly for you. Unfortunately, that coding cannot be read by most forum software and so the pictures appear whichever way they were taken with the phone.

There are some tips to get the 'correct' orientation for your photos on your phone.
Android users take photos with the HOME button to the RIGHT.
Apple users take photos with the VOLUME button DOWN.

This is the 'correct' orientation for pictures on your phone. The developers base this off of a DSLR camera that takes photos in landscape mode as a default. So when you take a picture with your phone in portrait view, it's like turning the DSLR camera to the side to take a portrait photo.

You can also open your pictures in an editor on your computer and manually rotate them. If you use an editor on your phone, you may need to crop off a couple pixels, or save a new name so that a change is registered.

Thanks Niall,

I will look into it on my phone or use an editor.
Was hoping it may have been a simple setting on the forum I was missing, as my first photos
uploaded to the site were always the correct orientation and without issue.
Something recently changed that I cant figure out.

Appreciate your reply.

You can also upload them to a 3rd party site like imgur and just link it here using IMG tags. 3rd party sites have the software to read and correct the images.
