What’s up with all the photos laying on their side??

Has everything fallen on its side and just missed the memo?

More and more of the project photos on this site are not rotated correctly.

Is this issue just flown by the admin folks?

It’s a result of more pics being taken with phones instead of digital cameras. The phones tag the pics some way that causes the orientation issues. With my phone, I have to take pics with the top of the phone to the left for pics to post correctly. In any other situation, I download them to a computer first and correct the orientation before posting. It took a time or two of posting pics, previewing them and deleting to figure it out, but now is not a problem.

Personally, I think it is very inconsiderate to post incorrectly oriented pics. It shows a lack of respect for other viewers and in the cases of projects, for all the work that was put in and the project itself. If someone puts hours into a project, but doesn’t care enough to take a few seconds to post pics correctly, why should I care enough to comment, favorite or otherwise recognize the effort in the woodworking?

When using phone cameras it’s easy to get the orientation wrong. I agree it’s lazy and inconsiderate not to fix them.

All of my pics are done with a smart phone, but I transfer each and every one to the computer for orientation and cropping before getting posted on LJs. I also make it a point to post-edit any on which I may have missed something and does not meet my own strict QC standards (like blurred images….)

I agree with you guys. I wonder if it’s possible for admin to make a sticky (or something similar) with a quick how to on this subject. It literally takes 5 seconds to fix, before you upload the pic, and you don’t even need a computer, at least not for an iPhone.

Don’t need the computer, either, with my Samsung, but since I eventually download all project pics to the computer anyways, it’s just easier to post from there. Should have been more clear in my original post.

I just noticed something curious….. there is a series of entries on the Blog tab that were posted today within minutes of each other, all under different user names, but they all look suspiciously like they are from the same person – the identical type of short descriptions of a project, and most of the pictures are missing. You can see the project pictures by clicking on the person’s ‘projects’ link, but the majority of them are inserted sideways!
The projects themselves are very nice, though.
Odd….but interesting!

How about sharing the fix

Sorry, I’d be glad to. It’s been shared so many times, by me and others, that I didn’t want to beat a dead horse.

Take your pictures, and then prior to uploading them, just crop them. You can crop them as much or as little as you’d like, but it works every time. I usually just crop them a smidge, unless the picture requires more, obviously.

Hope that helps,
