Sadly, you have to do that before you post. The iPhone seems to be a particular offender, you look at it at home and it's fine, you post it and it's rotated! :(

What I do is use the excellent and free IrfanView graphics application to rotate them. For the iPhone, just process every picture and rotate it until it's right even if it looks right when you first view it. IrfanView will also allow you to resize the pictures to a more "forum friendly" 1280 wide format.

Something to think about, if you hold your phone horizontally with the camera lens to the left and the shutter button to the right, it puts the picture in the proper orientation. No need to make any adjustments.

I have an Image / Photo question for John and the tech gang here ...

In the "old days", one would write a post, and then use the Manage Attachment tool to upload images, which would then need to be embedded into the written text with the tags.

But, at some point thereafter, the forum changed so that uploaded images would appear automatically in one's post (a good thing), but at the END of the written text.

Here's my question: How does one now write a post where there's some written text, then an image/photo, then some more text, then another image/photo? I.e.:

Bunch of written text

Photo

More written text

Another photo

Etc.

How does one now do that?

Thanks!

TJ

Ahh! How about that! Per John's instructions in Post #1 of this thread, old-dog TJ now tried clicking the Paper Clip icon a SECOND TIME, and then selecting each image with my cursor placed where I wanted the image to be "attached". Neat! Who knew?!?! Certainly not old dog me!

Thanks, John!!!

Oh ... one other thing: What does the checked or unchecked toggle "Automatically Embed Media" that's toward the bottom of the Advanced Post Settings do? Does that have something to do with the above?

Cheers,

TJ

Hello...
my screen name right now is ...
I was told that I shouldn't use my e-mail address for security reasons so I guess just good ole biff would be my next choice.

Will that work?

Thank you.
