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.
