I thought that I had done something wrong when my last pics all posted sideways. Now I see others are also appearing sideways. I wonder if there is an occasional glitch in the forum software that is causeing this?
Anyone know?

It seems to be very common with pics posted from an iphone. I always post mine the old fashioned way and have never had one show up sideways.

I am the only person on earth without an Iphone. I do post from an Ipad but my recent posts were from my PC.

What did you use to take the pictures? Did you take them with the camera horizontal or vertical? How are they oriented when you look at them with a generic picture viewer on your PC?

I took them with a digital camera oriented horizontally. The pics on the computer are also horizontal .

Mark.

There have been other posts with pics sideways from other members. Just wondering???

There is an orientation indicator in each jpg file. The iPhone sets this flag correctly. So either one of the steps you are doing to prepare the file for this forum (e.g., resizing) is stripping out the flag or the forum software is not correctly handling the flag.
