If they take pictures with their iPhone, the simplest solution is just turn the phone sideways instead of up and down, and when they post pictures on LJs, they’ll come out right…….Easy peasy, nice and easy…!!!

I use an i phone to take my pictures. I resize by pixels with mspaint. If I don’t they post upside down or sideways.

On the iphone, all you have to do is edit the photo and rotate it 90 degrees. Then edit again and rotate it back where it was to start with. Or, simply take pics in landscape mode if you know you’re going to post them and you won’t have to do anything.

I’m frankly shocked that you would suggest that someone should post some projects before mouthing off here. Because that’s exactly what I would do.

I kind of gave up after getting so much grief, but the fact is — if you want your comments to carry any weight, put something behind them. Like some projects or educational blog posts. Otherwise we have no idea what your credentials are.

Wow. A cutting board. For all I know it’s a photo from Pinterest. If not, make it a project if you want credit for it. Post some blogs too that educate us. Just like academia; publish or perish.

I see you don’t have any projects or blogs either, so I understand why you’d be sensitive about the issue. After six and a half years, I’d think you would post some projects if you’re really a woodworker.

Listen, I came on here after years on rec.woodworking and shop experience going back to 1960, but no documented projects to post. I was miffed that my word carried no weight, given my decades of experience. I realized you need to have a CV. Am I a master woodworker? No. But I’ve taken the time to show what I can do. Feel free to base your value of my comments on them.

I’ve also taken the time to share things I know and have learned in blog posts. Some pretty cool stuff if I do say so myself. And, my posts in threads document either how I’ve done something, or how I’d try it. The difference is always made clear. I never claim to be an expert on something I’m not.

Without that, it’s just all hot air. And, we have lots of it on here.

So, no projects and no blogs = zero value in my book.

Here’s the thing, Rick. I paid my dues. I got on here with years of experience and the teachings of my dad who was a very talented amateur woodworker going back to the 1950s. He built the kitchen cabinets in our house in Pasadena back in 1958 that my brother says are still there (a church bought the 3 acre property and the old house is still there). There was much more than that. He was self taught, without the Internet and built beautiful cabinetry and furniture. I’m fortunate to have had him there to teach me.

Back to joining LJ, why would anyone take me on my word if I had nothing to back it up? I knew what I was talking about, but why would you believe me? Based on what? Just because I said it? I could have been a complete poseur.

I’ve taken the time to document my work since then. And I have taken the time and effort to document things I’ve discovered in blog posts. I have one coming up on a fool proof method of setting up the Incra I-Box box joint jig in only two cuts.

So, instead of crying about me questioning your lack of credentials, go make some. I did.

P.S. Do some reviews, too. I see LJ as a community. It’s awesome and needs to be fed and nurtured to keep it growing. Projects, blogs and reviews accomplish that.

Sideways Pictures

This happens because the forum software is unable to read the EXIF data that is imprinted on the photo when you take it.

The EXIF data holds a lot of information, which includes orientation of your photo. Many programs are able to read this, and that is why you see it displayed upright in some places, but many others still are not.

This is a good article that explains all of this: https://www.howtogeek.com/254830/why-your-photos-dont-always-appear-correctly-rotated/

The gist of it is, the phones are designed to work like a digital camera. Holding your digital camera flat, in landscape, is the ‘base line’. Developers used this ‘base line’ in the following way for mobile devices:

Apple users: hold your phone with your VOLUME buttons DOWN.

Android users: hold your phone with your HOME button to the RIGHT.

It’s completely against common sense since the volume button is used as a shutter button, so you would think the volume button should point UP! But that is how developers worked it out, so when you hold your phone upright, in portrait, it is the same as turning your digital camera 90 degrees to the side, to take a portrait photo. Since the forum cannot read the data that tells it which way you are holding your phone, it displays plainly from the ‘base line’ – whichever side your volume buttons are on will be the bottom of your photo (so if you take a photo with your volume buttons facing UP on your phone, the photo will display upside down when you upload it here).

There is not currently any plugins or hacks that we’ve come across that can allow the forum to read the EXIF data at this time.

The only way around it is, either hold your phones the way the developers decided you should, OR you can open the photos in an Editing program (not the viewer), and save them in the correct orientation (you might need to rename them, and crop off a pixel or two, to make sure a change is recognized).

Hope that helps!

Nice work shawnn. Really beautiful. For the record, I don’t hate anyone on here. LJ is a great community.

My main point is that if I go to a job interview without a resume, they’ll send me packing. LJs without projects have no resume in my book. Perhaps I should have just said that and been less direct.

- shawnn

Let me rephrase this. 9 people still use a PC.

I know that is understated by a few users, but the problem is not photo orientation if you have not figured this out yet. I have posted photos that were properly in landscape, previewed them and posted. The service LumberJocks runs on has its own issue because a correctly oriented image can still be rotated by the service.

I just saw Cricket’s response: This happens because the forum software is unable to read the EXIF data that is imprinted on the photo when you take it.

The EXIF data holds a lot of information, which includes the orientation of your photo. Many programs are able to read this, and that is why you see it displayed upright in some places, but many others still are not.

YES. That is what I have found to be true. It can be a little more complicated because the orientation lock on your phone will still rotate for images so you can think you took the image correctly.

Thanks for the explanation Cricket. My experience of operating a mobile data collection service in 40 countries can confirm your diagnosis.

And thank you for addressing the banter. It is getting old quickly!

No, it doesn’t. Look at the pictures of trees above. All 3 are taken correctly on a phone. All 3 transfer and display correctly onto the computer. All 3 were correctly linked to the post.

It is the web service (as Cricket confirmed) that rotates them because the web service only wants a landscape image. It has NOTHING to do with the person’s ability to take a photo or their attempt to post an image.

The original posted at 90 degrees left, I rotated it right and uploaded and it uploaded that way?? Turns out after awhile farting around with it, I rotated it right, saved it and then rotated it back and it uploaded correctly? Same as I posed today. So friends, what’s up with that? Can’t this be fixed in the code? Seems it should post the orientation you upload it? It’s a really annoying. Doesn’t this bother anyone else? I guess I’m just easily aggravated in my old age

After originally making the post, I found that if I copy an image file from my phone to my computer, then open and save it in something like Paint, it will then post in the correct orientation. I use Paint to resize images, but even if not resizing, saving in JPG format reduces the file size. I’m guessing that whatever image software you have it would give the same results.
