Default How to avoid rotated photos

All too often, a member attaches photos to a post, and when the photos are displayed, they are rotated or upside down. This is annoying to everybody, especially the person who posted it. And when it happens in a For Sale ad, it can cost you a sale.

This is a "feature" of Apple phones. If you rotate an iPhone when taking a picture, the phone doesn't correct the rotation when the photo is saved. Instead, it saves the rotation information separately, and uses it to correct the rotation when the photo is displayed on an Apple device. However, not many non-Apple devices and apps make the correction, and the result is rotated pictures.

The easy solution is to hold your phone upright when taking a picture. For Apple, "UPRIGHT" means the VOLUME BUTTONS ARE FACING DOWN. If you do this, the picture will display correctly for everyone.
