    Smile How To View Sideways Pictures Right Way Up!!

    The forum software currently used here does not auto rotate pictures so the tags your camera or phone puts on your pics to tell which way was pointing up when you took the pic aren't read and even though the pic was ok on your phone or computer it may end up sideways (usually with vertical pictures) or upside down when you post it..

    The first thing to do is..PANIC!!

    No, wait..DON'T panic!! Yeah..that's what I meant!!

    Second, don't worry about it..it's (probably) not your fault..



    Now, how to view sideways pictures right way up on computers (Firefox, Chrome, etc..) and phones (I only have iOS to test on)..


    On your Computer, click on the sideways pics thumbnail, then once it is loaded, click on the pic itself and it should load the full size pic in your browser and rotate it too!! (Magic!!)

    On your phone/tablet (iOS at least) just clicking on the thumbnail should rotate it (although possibly squished).. You can then touch the photo itself for it to load the full size version right way up in a new window!!

    Tapatalk (on iOS at least) should show pictures in the correct orientation!!


    Try it here..The second picture in post one is sideways..

    Now, if it bothers you and you want all your pictures to be upright, you can edit or resize your pics with something simple like IrfanView and your new saved edited pics should upload how you want them to..

    And last resort..If you just spent three hours on the most beautiful, magnificent post Ever and right in the middle of it is an upside down pic of your fully restored Million God pachislo and it is driving you mad..Then you can ask an admin (yellow name people) to flip your picture!!

    Why isn't that the first option?? Well, because as of now there isn't some easy way for us to rotate pics.. We have to go in and edit your post, get the picture, edit it and then re-upload the pic and hope that your post doesn't get messed up!!


    Hope this helps!!

    Sooo you are saying that turning our heads sideways or upside down isn't an option anymore???

    This is my personal opinion, or of the voices in my head, and are not meant to reflect the opinion of this board.

    clear as mud! But seriously that makes perfect sense!

    I always go to my laptop and do a simple edit to 'right' the pictures and downsize if needed to get them under the 2meg limit. 800x600 pixel size seems to work well but what do I know, I look at everything on a large laptop, not a phone. Yes some old fogies are still around. I like my old dumb phone just how it is
