Hi all,

It seems that since the upgrade to the new format, we can not rotate pictures on Old Gas prior to posting them unless you use the old photo re-sizer. A lot of photo posts are coming out sideways now-a-days. Well through a lot of trial and error I have discovered a solution to the problem. It's not the best way, but it works. I'm not sure if this occurs with all cell phones or just Apple/ios products. The solution will only work with pictures that are in your phone.

Problem(s):
-If I take pictures with my Apple phone and post them, they come out sideways.
-If I download pictures from my Apple phone to my computer and rotate them correctly, they still come out sideways on Old Gas.

Solution:
-Take a picture or find a picture in your phone and view it.
-Click 'Edit' picture
-Click the rotate picture option.
-Rotate the picture, either 90, 180 or 270 degrees so it looks different (i.e. upside down or something) and click 'Done', which saves it. (do not rotate it 360 degrees so it looks the same - it will not work). YOU MUST CLICK 'DONE' TO SAVE IT.
-Now Edit it again and rotate the picture back to its upright position and click 'Done' to save it again.
-Now post the picture to Old Gas as normal and it should be right-side up.


This is actually easier done than explained, I just wanted to write step-by-step instructions for everyone. Basically you are rotating/altering and saving it, then putting it back to normal and saving it again. Don't ask me why it works, it just does. It took me a long time to figure it out after I played around with it for hours, but it seems to work consistently.

Please try it with other brands of phones and devices to see if this works. AGAIN, THIS MUST BE DONE FROM YOUR PHONE, NOT YOUR COMPUTER. But I have experimented, and if you do it on your phone first and download the picture to your computer, it WILL post correctly from your computer.

Hopefully there will be an easy fix when posting on here in the future, because it seems I am turning my head more often. But for now, give this a try.

I will also post this solution in the "Shop Talk Forum Help > iPhone Images Sideways" thread for future reference.

Give it a try in the 'Testing Area' thread.

Good Luck,
Steve (Speedracer)

Your welcome Jim. I hope it works for everyone.

If anyone tries it and it works, please reply with your results. I have an older iPhone 5s. I’d be curious to know if it works with other people’s devices.

Thanks for the fix Steve
It worked with my Samsung S8

I made the changes on my phone then saved them as a file to my drop box.
