Hi  Johnny.  :wave:

Welcome to the Collective!  :borg:
Lots of help/ hindrance available here!   Don't forget. We need to see pics and a description, of whatever you are doing......  :)

Make sure you resize your photos before posting. Use something like Fastzone resizer. I think 800x600 is the recommended size.

That's a bit of a pain in the Glutemus Maximus,but the fact the your photo hosting site doesn't figure out what is the top of the photo is a bigger pain. All photos are taken on an iPad or IPhone. The other two sites I post on support this,so photos are the right way up. The pain part is if I view the photo before resizing and posting,it shows the right way up.  Only when posted on here will I actually see how your hosting site rotates  it  :(

Johnny,

All mine are taken on an iPhone 7, then I down load them to my desktop running Windows 7 and resize, annotate, crop etc using Paint which is part of Win 7. It's got to the stage now that it's practically an automatic process !

Hi Andrew
Yeah, the phone bit isn't the issue. I lost the will to live with Windows,with their constant upgrades that do naught for you,and the constant viruses and malware that was a never ending battle. Moved over to an iPad, do exactly the same as before,and touchwood ,haven't had a single issue in four years..., So no longer do anything on a Pc if it's connected to the Internet. It's not insurmountable,just need to find an iPad friendly solution  :thumbup:

It's apple products that cause the orientation issue trying to be too clever for their own good.

Anyway, there must be plenty of resizing apps in the apple store.

Pete,  the resizing is easy to sort. I just email the photos back to myself. It gives you an option there  :)

Its the orientation that's a .....
Just wonder how the couple of other forums I post on, have sussed  it!
