Topic tags/keywords: question

I’m curious how folks feel about the times that a member takes it upon themselves to rotate photos posted by another member, and then repost them to the same thread. Something about it just doesn’t sit right with me. It’s usually done without asking first, and often without comment, as if to say “there, I fixed it for you, dummy.”

That photo is the property of the original poster. To me, it almost seems analogous to walking into someone’s shop and changing something on a project they have in progress. Like, your drawer pulls weren’t aligned properly, so I fixed them for you.

I can understand everyone’s frustration, since it’s so easy to fix, and simply using the “Preview” button would make it obvious there’s a problem before you post, but does that make it OK to manipulate another’s property?

Any opinions for or against?

So that’s one vote “for,” I assume. :)

Just for the record, I don’t have a stake in this. I do think that it’s the one really weak point in this otherwise excellent web site. In fact, I almost posted it to the site feedback forum.

Go for it.

It’s a publicly posted photo….not someones underwear drawer.

I don’t do it, but, i’m defintnetly for it. Most times I’ll ignore the post completely cause it’s a total PITA and usually not worth the effort.

People need to figure out how to post pictures and it’s been discussed MANY times.

I do not read posts with rotated pictures. I say leave the pictures the way they are posted and let people figure out the right way to post pictures.

I also do not look at blogs that just say…look at my video with no other explanation.

I love some of the recent blogs with pictures showing the details on how a project is made.

I’m solidly in the “for” camp.

I think people who take the time to fix careless mistakes of someone else should be rewarded. I frequently just ignore threads that start out that way. It is exceedingly annoying.

I don’t have an issue with it. Though the original poster should attempt to verify the orientation of their photos, the preview doesn’t work when posting project pics. Also, the pic is on a public forum and unless presented as their own or for profit, there’s no violation of ownership by someone changing the orientation, that I can see.

Good points. A big +1 on the posts that just say watch my video. How useless can it get?

Anyway, it looks unanimous. Lots of thoughtful comments, and one characteristically random one.

Thanks.

Yeah I tend to stay away from the watch my video ones.

Now if it was a full post accompanied by the video link and I was interested in the post I’d ne more inclined to watch.
