Problem with sideways pic uploaded to the site

Not open for further replies.


I have uploaded a few pics of my baby to illustrate a couple posts, however, many of them have uploaded sideways. Is there a way to edit the orientation without reuploading them?

I've found that happens quite a bit. I think it has to do with the coding embedded in the image by your phone camera and how it's processed by the code on the site. I don't know of a way to adjust it after the fact. I've read that the orientation you hold your phone when you take the photo has something to do with it. It's not a huge deal really. It not too tough for us to view the images even if they're turned around.

Yeah. It's a combination of certain phones/cameras embedding the "orientation info" in different ways, and that the code I wrote for handling/processing the uploads doesn't take into account the way that they are doing it. I have not had a chance to sit down and rework that code (I really need to get to that).

One workaround is to take the image in your phone (it's usually phone pics that do this), edit it within the phone, rotate it sideways (doesn't matter which way), save that, then edit it again, rotate again until straight, then save again. What I've found is that when edited and re-saving the orientation, it does it in the way that the code on the website expects. I don't know why the original picture doesn't.

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
