Many iPhone and iPad users find that their photos are sometimes turned sideways when they post them on our forum and other places on the Web. This is a glitch in the Apple iOS system that saves the image in a non-standard way. The orientation is saved as a bit of code within the image file. Sometimes the image will even have the orientation instructions recorded in two conflicting ways in the same image.

Might look just like you took it on your iOS mobile device or Mac, but looks sideways when you email it or post it on the Web.

Try using our Image Resize Tool to edit the photo before you post it.

* After you upload the image to the Resize Tool, click on the "item actions" menu just below your uploaded image in the Resize Tool Album.
* Select "edit photo" from the drop-down menu
* Click on the "Modify Photo" tab in the edit page.
* Under the "Rotate" heading, click on the button for Counter-clockwise 90, 180 or Clockwise 90 rotation as needed.
* After the modification, right click to save the edited image to your computer or device. Upload that image to Shop Talk using File Manager.

Another way to fix this problem is to simply email the pictures from your phone to yourself. Open up your email on your computer and save the images to your desktop. Then just open the picture with windows picture gallery and it'll usually show up sideways if it's going to, and so you just rotate the image right there in windows gallery and click save. Done. Now you can upload the images to any site you wish and they will be right side up.

Hi all,

It seems that since the upgrade to the new format, we can not rotate pictures on Old Gas prior to posting them unless you use the old photo re-sizer. A lot of photo posts are coming out sideways now-a-days. Well through a lot of trial and error I have discovered a solution to the problem. It's not the best way, but it works. I'm not sure if this occurs with all cell phones or just Apple/ios products. The solution will only work with pictures that are in your phone.

Problem(s):
-If I take pictures with my Apple phone and post them, they come out sideways.
-If I download pictures from my Apple phone to my computer and rotate them correctly, they still come out sideways on Old Gas.

Solution:
-Take a picture or find a picture in your phone and view it.
-Click 'Edit' picture
-Click the rotate picture option.
-Rotate the picture, either 90, 180 or 270 degrees so it looks different (i.e. upside down or something) and click 'Done', which saves it. (do not rotate it 360 degrees so it looks the same - it will not work). YOU MUST CLICK 'DONE' TO SAVE IT.
-Now Edit it again and rotate the picture back to its upright position and click 'Done' to save it again.
-Now post the picture to Old Gas as normal and it should be right-side up.

This is actually easier done than explained, I just wanted to write step-by-step instructions for everyone. Basically you are rotating/altering and saving it, then putting it back to normal and saving it again. Don't ask me why it works, it just does. It took me a long time to figure it out after I played around with it for hours, but it seems to work consistently.

Please try it with other brands of phones and devices to see if this works. AGAIN, THIS MUST BE DONE FROM YOUR PHONE, NOT YOUR COMPUTER. But I have experimented, and if you do it on your phone first and download the picture to your computer, it WILL post correctly from your computer.

Hopefully there will be an easy fix when posting on here in the future, because it seems I am turning my head more often. But for now, give this a try.

Give it a try in the 'Testing Area' thread.

Good Luck,
Steve (Speedracer)
