It's never an issue when I post photos taken with my Canon camera so I guess I just need to keep it with me at all times and forget using the camera on my phone.
Phil I'm with you on this. I always thought I was pretty smart about figuring this kind of stuff out eventually but ever since I got this new Samsung S8 active most of the pictures I take with it will with out rhyme or reason post sideways on AAPK so I have stopped posting pics from my phone. I have tried all the suggestions but none work and it doesn't happen when I post to Facebook or other sites only on AAPK. Something in AAPK software doesn't click with my phones software.

jerryd6818 wrote: Mike there are a few threads on the subject in the 'Tips & Tricks' Forum but people don't read them. There have been several discussions and much research done on this issue with the results posted on the forum but people don't read. Reorienting them is a very easy thing to do but people don't read.

I got tired of putting information out there only to have it ignored so I started just flipping them right side up but if you do that it is just enabling because in addition to not reading people don't even try. So I quit doing that (mostly). I'm tired and I no longer care. No offense intended.
Oh.... no offense taken Jerry..... What brought this thread about....
There was SEVERAL side-ways pics in one particular thread I was following.... SO, I made a report / complaint to the mods....
Well, dale sent me a PM and basically said what you just said.
He then told me to post a thread here for suggestions about "how to fix people" BUT, I guess that point is moot.... You can't fix people.

As I have said above.... I will just have to learn to live with it.

I think some of the problem comes from people that post the picture to the forum directly from their phone. I never do that, I always move the picture to my PC, then post to the forum from my PC.
WOW.... that is a new one on me.... Thanks for that tip! I gotta go try that one out!

That is weird Phil.... Not saying it doesn't happen i'm just saying.... weird...LOL.
I take 99% of my pics with my phone and I use microsoft office picture editing software to downsize and orient my pictures..... and I haven't had a problem yet.
(BUT...... Now that I have said that, the next picture I post will be side-ways......)

You know... The problem just has to be from that CUTE LITTLE thing where you can turn your phone and the picture stays in the same orientation.
Well, what pi$$e$ me off is when the dang picture on my phone is sideways and I try to turn my phone so i can see it straight.... Then the dang picture flops back over sideways..... No way to win this battle.

OK.... my final shot across the bow.....

I am gonna be like Jerry said..... People don't read..... SO, even if there was a giant hand that would come out of your computer and slap you if you posted a sideways pic.....LOL.... some folks would not go read and find out WHY and HOW TO MAKE IT STOP.... They would just start ducking.

So, I give..... I will resign myself to the fact.... this is a people thing and can't be fixed. My OCD will just have to live with it.
OH WELL..... Onward!

There is an icon on your computer that allows you to rotate a photo. It's at the top of the page. Each time you click on that icon, it rotates the photo 90 degrees.

Just so Mike’s head doesn’t explode, I fixed it for ya. (Lord knows you fixed enough of my pics before I figured everything out.)
