Photos turning sideways when posting

#1

Post by VandymanG »

So this is a new issue for me. My photos are now getting turned sideways when I post. I’m not doing anything different from previous post before the migration and upgrade to the forum so I’m very confused.

Hi VandymanG :smlling-eyes
Photos taken on smartphones, tablets and some cameras can look great on your device but appear upside down or sideways when uploaded to a post or page because the device stores the image’s orientation in the EXIF metadata and not all software is able to read the metadata.
