Subject: Image rotated from mobile upload?
Date Posted: 22 January 2020 at 7:43pm
When I upload an image to the forum from a mobile device, it is rotated 90 deg.

There does not seem to be an editor tool that will correct that.

Of course uploading from a computer seems fine. I have not tried my ipad yet.

Whilst it would be easy to instruct users to utilize only a computer to post photos, with everyone on mobile devices now, this has become a concern.

Any insights or help would be appreciated. I suspect I am missing something, but wanted to ask.

I am using WWF 12.01.

Thank you,

Scott

It is likely that your mobile devices is automatically rotating the image for you when display don the mobile device  but when uploaded it would be display in the rotation that the image is stored in.

Bruce,

I did a little independent research myself, and yes it appears the "EXIF" data in the photo is where the problem is.

Would it be possible that the image upload tool could have an image rotation option? That would be an easy kill to the problem. From my mobile device last night I was able to post some photos up with screen rotation locked, and then it looked ok when I uploaded and reloaded the forum, however this morning I load up the forum on my work computer and it is in the wrong orientation.

Regards,

Scott

It looks like AspJpeg can detect the EXIF data in an image;

This could be used to detect the orientation of the image and rotate it.
