    Apparently a lot of Android phones have this problem, the camera module internal to the phone takes the photo with a weird orientation, then the phone's camera software is supposed to tag the image with the 'correct' orientation.

    Problem seems to be that a lot of other software (Tapatalk?) ignores the orientation tag embedded inside the photo so the result ends up incorrect.

    Yeah it's kind of crazy, some come out okay and other turned sideways. All from the same phone and same album there being transfer from . Thanks for explaining the problem. Guess the only way to make sure it doesn't happen is to transfer to my laptop then share on the forum.

    If you edit or crop the photo at all, on either the phone or the laptop, that can change how it orients after uploading.

    Okay, no never edit or crop them. Just using the phone to view the forum most of the time and sharing the photos from my phone straight to the site

    Odd way to spell iPhone.

    So photos taken in landscape orientation will upload and display in GH as expected but photos taken in vertical orientation display on GH as sideways, correct?

    You are using mobile Safari to upload the images, not Tapatalk or any other app, correct?

    Edit: Moved this 'tech' discussion to a separate thread.
