I’m amazed by the number of pictures I see posted – not just here but on all forums I visit – that are rotated 90 degrees or upside down. It makes the pictures essentially worthless, why bother posting them at all if that one SIMPLE action is too difficult?

Go to the folder where the picture is saved, right-click then select “Open with Paint”, rotate to the correct orientation, then save. Takes about 10-15 seconds. You can also resize them in Paint, and the resulting file is only a fraction of its original size – and it’s actually worth viewing!

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 couldnt say it any better shawnn,if the pics are sideways or upside down i usually wont take the time to comment on their project,just ruins the presentation.and i agree take a minute to show off the project that took weeks or months to build.one guy here posted his avatar upside down and even after members told him how to fix it he left it as it was.gotta go,im all worked up now-LOL!.

I leave my pics sideways because it makes your brain work differently when viewing it from a different angle.

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.

It wasn’t always like this, just something I’ve noticed this year. It’s not just here.

It doesn’t bother me. I view all this stuff on my phone and am also more than capable of rotating said phone to view pictures

I like to rotate my photos 90 degrees about the horizontal axis. For instance, here is my new puppy!

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.

You gotta pay your dues.
