Why are my pictures upside-down?

Postby Rin » Mon Sep 04, 2017 12:45 pm

So I've been trying to post pictures here in the forums, but for some reason all but one have been showing up upside-down. Each of these pictures has been taken using my phone, then transferred to my computer. They're right side-up on my computer, but when I try to add them to posts here they come out flipped!

More baffling, I tried to get around this by editing the pictures to be upside-down in the original file... and they still turned out upside down (that is, the altered pictures didn't flip)! And when I switched them back in the file, there they went flipping upside-down again!

This is just the strangest thing! Does anyone know what's happening?

Looks normal to me, unless you glued your keyboard and that jar on a ceiling.

It's upside down for me too! Maybe it flips them only on mobile? :mystery:

That's pretty strange, especially since it's keeping them upside down on ones you flipped, haha.

Maybe try saving a right-side-up one still as right-side-up on your comp and try uploading that as an attachment?

Sometimes mobile files are weird, I've noticed. But editing it and resaving it on your comp might... stop that?

That's exactly what I've been doing. I transfer & save the files to my computer, and edit them, save again, and upload them from there (I never browse these forums on my phone, just for reference).

The fact that ONE picture still managed to come out right side-up is the most baffling bit. And that one was unedited!

I think the culprit here is if you change the orientation of a picture in the picture preview of windows or a similar program. The orientation information is stored separately from the actual image data - some programs take that data into account, whereas others don't, and that's how you get the discrepancy of it being displayed differently on different devices/programs.

When I click on your photo to enlarge it, it gets correctly displayed as right-side-up.

Maybe you're holding your phone upside down? The flash should be on top.

Hahaha! That'd be pretty funny!

But no, I'm not holding the phone upside-down. BD's forums are literally the only place the photos are displaying upside-down. They're in the correct orientation on my phone and on my computer.
