    sideways pics

    Why are so many of our forum members pictures showing up sideways? Any way the reader can flip them upright?

    Stop drinking when your taking pictures?

    Stop drinking when you're viewing the pictures?

    This is a good question! A lot of mine load sideways for some reason.

    I had the same problem that I posted I believe on the android app post. I bought a new android tablet and was loading the pictures I took onto SF through the regular website and no matter what I did they posted horizontally.
    Here is what I have to do to get the pics to load correctly.
    1. Only use the android app to load pictures from my phone or tablet.
    2. When you attach the pics they will appear in the small preview as horizontal but when you tap "submit" they will post in the correct position.
    3. When taking a picture horizontally make sure the camera lens is on the left.
    4. Now my problem is after I post a picture they will appear and reappear in a post. In some cases there is a blank square where before there was a picture. If you look at my last Reno trip you will see what I mean.
    Hope this is helpful.

    Slotnut13, So your saying it's app problem used by the poster and not the SF website that causes this to happen,right? Just saw some more sideways pics from suze1000's post tonight that are sideways too. Thanks

    payline, this may or may not help, as I have a number of addons to firefox and it may be one of them that allows this but if I right click on a pic in the menu there is an option to rotate the image.

    I know this doesn't help the uploaders, but it may help the viewer.

    I use pc so no idea if this is available on mac.

    Awesome, I hate tilting my head as well. I wasn't sure if it was one of my addons (guessing it is) but it looks like you got it!

    No, the app corrects it for me, posting on the website does not. I posted this question on the Android Forum and one of the experts said with the android KitKat update some browsers have this problem. I used Chrome. I see someone tried a different browser and got it to work, so I guess they were correct.
