    yes...it overwrote a couple of words on my trip report - compromising my penmanship and seriously disrupting the narrative :angelic:

    The permissions must be set a bit different in the places and planning forum, I'll take a look later when I get on a PC

    cheers for the heads up

    I don't think there's anything I can do about it Ed I'm afraid

    I'll do some more digging though

    It only does that for me if there are lots of pics in a thread as it sticks part way won while the pics load. Eds trip reports for instance. After a minute or too it will move to last post but I've normally scrolled down myself by then,

    Intriguing; just tried it and waited 30s - nothing; ah well.

    BTW 30s is a loooong time...

    In our house it usually takes 10 - 15 mins to download Ed's TR's :arghh:

    And never worth it.

    Good comment. More so as I've just spent the day looking at work on the digital divide.

    Reality bites :D

    Every now and then, the software unnecessarily rotates unloaded photos by 90 degrees. I think it happens to others too.

    I have tried to compensate by rotating photos at source in the opposite direction, but it makes no difference.

    Can this be tweaked? I assume it's some sort of auto recognise setting for horizons or upright figures thats misfiring?

    E.g. My pic of the day post. Both images are portrait at my end, yet one comes out rotated.

    Are you uploading to the site or are the photos hosted elsewhere?

    Are the photos taken on an Apple device?

    Uploaded.

    It's happening with phone and pc

    Done a bit of reading, it's not a bug with the forum software and I'm not sure there's a fix for it.

    The rotation parameters are contained within the EXIF data, which Xenforo doesn't read, the only image manipulation XF does is to resize any images according to the parameters I've set.

    It seems the only way round it is to make sure that home button is on the right when you use your Apple device to take the picture, is that something you could test Mole?

    I've had exactly the same problem as Mole, but only with portrait setting.

    I'm on an Android phone.

    So, I assume you think it's based on orientation of the phone when taking the photo?
    Yes. Only happens with certain portrait shots.

    My photos on Canon camera, downloaded to laptop, rotated, resized, and uploaded to treklite direct from laptop. Not hosted anywhere.

    It's the same with the Canons too apparently Cathy

    A work around might be to crop the photo (but keep the same size) and save it as another file

    can exif data not be stripped or edited prior to upload?
  21. Shewie

    Shewie Administrator Staff Member

    From what I've read on some Android and IOS threads, the crop trick seems to be the easiest solution, still a PITA but not sure what else to suggest.

    Have you come across this before Ross?
  22. EM - Ross

    EM - Ross Thru Hiker

    Yep - not often though. Got distracted before I got to the bottom of it. I think I still have a sample problem pic on file so can check it out if I can find it.

    Just to confuse things even further, folk are saying Windows 7 onwards also rotates photos automatically sometimes, but only for display, i.e viewing them in Explorer. So a photo could look alright on a PC but actually the EXIF data is still actually rotating it in the background.

    I'm trying to see if there's any add-ons I can look at downloading so I'll keep digging

    But I'm sure most are so thought I'd mention it
