i am trying to post a project and every photo I upload either upside down or sideways.

Is anyone else encountering this?

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I post from an Apple laptop (MacBook Pro) and have had similar wrong-display-orientation on LJ and other forums when posting images shot on my iPhone and imported into the MBP before posting. The 100% solution has been to open the image in some app like GraphicConverter and then save it before posting the result—usually with some transformation such as AutoLevels and/or Unsharp Mask, but I believe it also works without making any such changes, i.e. just load-and-save. My guess is that (re-)saving the image from some app such as GC adds or removes or modifies whatever tags or metadata are affecting (or the lack of which are affecting) image orientation as displayed on LJ.

Hope this helps…

I have the same problem with iphone photos. I have taken to only taking pics with my iphone in vericle format.

Lumberjocks doesn’t recognize the data in the file that sets the rotation, so anything other than your camera’s default orientation will come out wierd.

I have been rotating images in photos to upside down then back to right side up. Then they post properly
