    Photo Orientation?

    Not sure what's changed but for some reason when I attach a photo to a forum post, it shows up upside down. In the past everything came in fine, right side up. Has something changed and how can I correct this? Thanks for your time.

    It's not you
    We have been looking for a definitive reason and cure for this problem- talked about here- https://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread...is-upside-down
    There have been a couple of threads but that one comes to mind. Wish I had a better answer for you.

    Nothing has changed on this end that I know of. Likely there was an update to your phone's software that is now making this happen.

    I had used the manage attachments in the past which worked fine. Per the link I tried the tree icon in the edit window with thw same results. There was a recent update of the IOS (10.3.2). Could be the problem. Not sure what to do about it.

    I'm not sure what the secret handshake is, but I believe that some amount of pre-rotation of the picture on the device or on your computer before uploading helps.

    FWIW, I never upload photos to the Forum from the iPhone. I let them transfer to my MacBook Pro, make sure they're oriented correctly there, and then upload. Seems to work fine.
