Please tell me why my vertical (photo) shots are posting sideways when I upload them to the forums?

can you point to an example.... provide a link or more info like if they appear as verticals when viewed off your computer hard drive what software is used for viewing? Some cameras turn verticals properly when transfered from camera to computer; some don't. .....

Tried to post this in the "I love America!" thread a bit earlier. Maybe if I shrink it/lower the resolution?

Weird. When I view it on my mobile it's true to the photo (taken from the camera on my mobile), but it was uploaded from a laptop as the forums don't support uploading files from my device.

I took the loop through King's Canyon/Sequoia Natl. Parks on Monday. The photo is from an old growth grove on the north end of the loop if anyone was curious. I've got a bunch more, as well as some from Point Reyes and Muir Woods I snapped in December, but I'd like everyone to be able to see them properly before I go posting them all skewed.

I see the image as a horizontal (trees sideways, ground to the right) when I download/copy it from the permies forum to my computer. Then on my computer I can rotate it (easy with Windows picture viewer). Then I can upload it here as a vertical.  

My digital camera will auto rotate a vertical shot when I view it on the camera. When I download a vertical image to my computer I have to rotate the image to vertical in order to view it correctly. This I do with software that came with the camera; I have the preferences set to do that automatically. However, if I download it from the camera to a computer that does not have that software the image has to be rotated manually.  Hope that's clear.

Note it is a huge file (2.20MB) as it sits. Way too large for some folks to be able to view the file. An image for forum use is best made no longer than 1024 pixels in any direction and a file size of 100 to 200 KB or less.  Folks with slow connections don't stand much chance of viewing larger images like that.

Amazing trees BTW



I downsized that to 800 px tall and reduced jpeg quality to about 60% and 167 KB size. Perfect for viewing online, not so good to print.

Alright.. think I got some fixed up to display properly. I'm gonna post them in the meaningless drivel/"I Love America!" thread as I'd originally intended if anyone wants to skip over for a look. Thanks again for the help.

Gorgeous trees!
I find that when my camera and computer are doing ideosyncratic things with saving rotation info, I can override it manually.  Even if the picture appears right-side-up on my computer, it sometimes has a little rotation arrow on the file to show that it's adjusting itself for me. 

I just rotate the picture myself (regardless of how it's displaying), and then rotate it again until it is right-side-up.  This saves the rotation information as I intend it, without weird camera-based info.  Doesn't require any sophisticated knowledge or my camera manual, either.

Glad you found what works.
