    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.

    Your suggestion to rotate the photo before loading seems to be the ticket. Thanks again for the help. gp

    There should be a better solution than load picture on some other computer than rotate it some, might be right. The rotate button should be in the forum software

    Sorry, but the forum software we're using is not being modified or updated anymore...only updated for security reasons. This is a problem with specific phones with specific operating systems. I'm pretty sure that any picture I've uploaded with my phone has never resulted in a rotated picture. Thus the issue has to be with the embedded information that is incorrectly being used on other phones/systems that is the problem. So, going forward, the user's will have to figure out how to "beat the system".

    Take the photo holding the phone rotated 180 degrees, or transfer to a computer and rotate the photo, or see if you can find an app that will rotate photos on the phone.

    +1 Yep, no matter what you will have to rotate - somehow. Annoying but doable.
